Children and Family Health Surrey’s school nurses and health visitors are part of the 0-19 nursing team who work with children and young people 19 years (up to 25 for young people with additional needs) and their families.
School nurses and health visitors are registered nurses who have completed additional specialist training in public health or school nursing.
Each 0-19 team comprises health visitors, school and immunisation nurses, child and adolescent mental health community nurses, staff nurses, community nursery nurses and admin support. They work from a variety of settings, including child health drop-ins (which may be held in children's centres), homes and schools.
We work in partnership with general practitioners, midwives, children's centres, nurseries, schools, and voluntary organisations. The teams also support families in which there are additional health, emotional or social needs and work closely with Surrey Safeguarding Children’s Board to help protect children across Surrey.
The 0-19 teams work with families to identify any health needs early on and to give support with parenting and health advice. You will be contacted by the health visiting service at antenatal contact and support will continue when your child goes to school, when our school nurses will become your main service for support with parenting and health matters.
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.
