"People prefer talking to nurses about these things"
What do we do? We work in schools locally for agreed weekly, fortnightly or monthly blocks of hours. For the hours we are in school we will carry out any emotional, mental or physical health based work required. This might be one to one sessions with pupils, parents, supporting teachers, managing difficult behaviours, assessment and referrals to other services, lessons as part of SRE, speech and language assessments, nurture work, healthcare plans for pupils with a health need, medicines management, supporting with staff training, classroom observation and early identification of issues and a multitude of other things we can offer.
