School nurses are like your ‘health friends’.

Every school has school nurses that help to keep the children as safe and healthy as possible.

Perhaps you are feeling a bit sad? You could talk to your school nurse and they will not tell anyone about your worries unless it is to keep you safe.

Maybe you have asthma or hayfever – your school nurse can give you useful advice on what you can do so that it does not stop you from having fun. They help children to manage any illnesses or disabilities.

School nurses are always thinking about new and different ideas to teach you about keeping healthy. Perhaps you could think of a fun activity that your class could do to learn about looking after your teeth or about digesting food? Don’t forget to tell your school nurse about it!

Your school can tell you how to contact your School Nurse team.
