Offered to every family
Working in partnership with children, young people and families to lead and deliver the Healthy Child Programme (5-19) working with Health Visitors to programme a seamless transition upon school entry.
School Nurses and their team provide the Healthy Child Programme to ensure a healthy start for every child (e.g. immunisations, health checks). They support children and parents to ensure access to a range of community services.
Further support for children, young people, and families
Universal Plus delivers a swift response from your School Nurse when your child needs specific expert help (e.g., with sexual health, mental health concerns, long-term conditions and additional health needs). The School Nurse will see your child either in school, the community if your child comes to see the School Nurse in drop in or through a referral from yourself or another professional.
Working with other services to provide additional support
Universal Partnership Plus delivers ongoing support by your School Nurse from a range of local services working together and with you, to deal with more complex issues over a period of time (e.g. with charities and your local authority).
