School Nursing Team

The School Nursing Service aim is to work together with children and young people their parents/carers and school staff, to provide a comprehensive efficient and accessible service which:

  • Helps children keep healthy during their school days and for the rest of their lives
  • Prevents ill health in children and the local community
  • Supports children with medical needs and those needing medication
  • Ensures that educational potential is not hampered by unmet health needs
  • Monitors and supports families in relation to Hertfordshire Safeguarding Policies

When your child commences school at the age of five, care is transferred from the Health Visiting Service to the School Nursing Service. The service has four distinct areas that it offers to children attending a Hertfordshire mainstream school.
