The School Nurse
School Nurses provide a range of services that promote the good health and wellbeing of school aged children and young people. School Nurses support schools to ensure that children and young people with disabilities or long term medical conditions (e.g. asthma, diabetes epilepsy, allergies) have access to their education and reach their full learning potential. School Nurses are also able to signpost children and young people into additional specialist services to ensure that they receive the health care they need and provide confidential advice concerning young people’s health issues.
SENDIASS Camden is an impartial, confidential and free service for the families of children with SEND. Families can self-refer to this service or speak to the school SENDCO if they would like school to make a referral.
