School nursing - Solihull
What we do
We provide a named school nurse in each school in Solihull, to help children and young people (from school entry to 19 years old) to take responsibility for their own health and to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
We also assess the health needs of the school community, planning and implementing programmes that promote and protect public health. We work in partnership with other agencies to address wider threats to, and inequalities, in health.
Solihull School Nursing Service supports the delivery of the Healthy Child Programme 5-19 years old (DH 2009) and adheres to the guidance as per Solihull Safeguarding Children’s Board. This includes for example the delivery of the National Child Measurement Programme, Reception and Year 6 Health Assessments and Hearing Screening.
