West Heath School

School Nurse

The role of the school nurse in contributing to the holistic nature of the school is clearly significant. As part of the induction process students take part in a health assessment by the school nurse. This provides a baseline for effective monitoring, whilst also generating information that can support staff most effectively meet the needs of each child. The information gained can assist not only in supporting a child’s healthy development, but can in certain instances be invaluable in ensuring the safeguarding of each member of our community.
