School nursing (general)

Service overview

Our school nursing teams across Surrey promote health and emotional wellbeing in schools and in the community.


They do this by:

  • Being available to young people, parents, carers and teaching staff to address any concerns about a child’s health
  • Providing health advice to help children and young people make the most of their education
  • Completing health reviews with children starting primary and secondary school
  • Holding health drop-ins in secondary schools which offer young people an opportunity to discuss health issues confidentially
  • Supporting young people who have specific medical needs and providing relevant training for staff to help manage these needs
  • Delivering classroom-based health education
  • Supporting immunisation programmes in school
  • Leading community clinics to help children with night-time wetting
  • Working with school-aged children in the community who have been excluded or where families have chosen to educate at home.

School nurses are paediatric (children’s) nurses who have completed additional specialist training.

The school nurse team that was based at Weybridge Hospital has had to be relocated due to a fire that destroyed the building in the early hours of 12 July 2017.

The team is still able to provide a service. We are arranging for the phone line to be diverted so they can pick up and respond to messages. If you have an urgent enquiry or concern in the meantime, please email ask.cfhs@nhs.net and we will respond as soon as we can.
