Description

School nurses work with pupils and their families who attend mainstream schools in Cambridgeshire. School nurses provide support for physical or emotional health with clinics available for continence problems. Following a referral, an assessment of need will be completed to decide what help and support needs to be provided. This might include a referral to another service or agency. How long the service is involved will vary, depending on the child’s or young person's needs. School nurses work during term times; your local doctor's surgery can provide advice and support during school holidays.

Eligibility

All school aged pupils attending a mainstream school in Cambridgeshire can access the service.

Referral

Children, young people and their families can ask to see their school nurse. The school, a doctor, locality team or any person working with a child or family can make a referral to the school nurse by completing an assessment called a Family Common Assessment Framework (FCAF).
