The Trafford School Nursing Service aims to promote the health of the school-aged child. All children from Reception year to year 11 who attend a Trafford school or who are not on a school roll but live in Trafford (for instance Home Educated children) are offered a service.
Children are routinely offered growth screening in Reception Year and Year 6 and hearing screening in Reception year. The School Nursing Service also supports the delivery of the immunisation programme in secondary schools.
The service can offer information, advice, support and referral to specialist agencies to children, young people and families on a range of health related issues including medical conditions, behavioural difficulties and lifestyle issues. The service is delivered through health promotion activities, drop-in services in primary and secondary schools and one to one contacts. The service can be accessed directly by parents/ carers, children/ young people themselves or through referral from other professionals.
The best way to contact School Nurses is through school. Alternatively you can contact us through the local area Family Support Team, see below.
