About School Nursing Service - Glossop And Tameside

The School Nursing service aims to prevent illness and provide support for you child whilst they are of school age. All schools have a contact school nurse. We provide a comprehensive immunisation and screening programme. We work with children and families to promote and support healthy lifestyles. We work to improve emotional and mental health in children and raise awareness on how to access services. We support children with bed wetting. We support children with additional needs and ensure children have a school focused care plan. We provide a drop in service within most high schools where young people can obtain confidential advice on any aspect of their physical and emotional health. We work closely with our partners in social care to provide support to families dealing with issues surrounding safeguarding children. We give training to school staff and parents regarding medical conditions which may affect children in school. Our health mentors work with families offering brief interventions to children to improve health and well being.
