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
We are following the current government advice to stop all non-essential face-to-face contact between the WSHWBS and children, young people, parents/carers and other professionals. We are working with our partner organisations to ensure statutory meetings and assessments can take place remotely. More information for professionals is available here.
If you are unsure if an appointment or meeting will take place, please call us on 03300 245 204.
