Your child’s school nurse: An introduction for parents, guardians and carers

What is this leaflet for?

This leaflet explains about the school nurse service. Every school in Grampian has a named school nurse. This school nurse takes a special interest in the health and wellbeing of every child attending the school. Working with education staff and supported by the lead nurse for school nursing, the school nurse deals with the health needs of the school community.

Why do we have a school nurse?

The school nurse aims to promote health, by encouraging children and young people to make healthy lifestyle choices.  Throughout your child's time at school, your child will go through transitional periods – when they move from nursery school to primary school, when they move from primary to secondary school and when they leave school. At these important times, your child's school nurse will make sure your child's health needs are met.

State secondary schools have a confidential 'Open Door Policy', where the school nurse is available to offer advice and support.
