A school nursing service for the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme 5-19, led by school nurses for the promotion, prevention and protection of children and young people’s health and wellbeing. Our service is available to all Warwickshire school aged children and young people from 5-19 years old (up to 25 years old for people with special educational needs).
The service follows Warwickshire Safeguarding Children’s Board policies and procedures and forms part of multi-agency services for children, young people and families where there are child protection or safeguarding concerns.
Our caring and friendly school health and wellbeing team are available at a time that suits you and at a place where you feel comfortable.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) service update
In line with government guidance and the lifting of some COVID-19 restrictions, we are pleased to say we are now offering a blended approach to completing meetings, interventions, training and workshops. Some activities will be held virtually and some will be provided face-to-face. Where a face-to-face intervention is required, we will utilise social distancing and ensure other protective measures are in place. You can find out more information for professionals here, with more information and resources for children, young people and families here.
If you are unsure if or how an appointment or meeting will take place, please call us on 03300 245 204.
We understand these unsettling times can have a negative impact on the health and wellbeing of children, young people and families. Our school nurse-led team is here to provide support and advice: please get in touch.
