School Nursing and SEND Support
School nurses are part of Bedfordshire Community Health Services’ 0-19 team. Our team is made up of specialist nurses, staff nurses and support health professionals.
When your child comes to school we take over their care from your health visitor. We can support your child with their physical and emotional needs from when they start school until they leave. Our role is to ensure that nothing gets in the way of your child’s development, so that they can achieve their full potential through good attendance at school.
Our school nurses are mobile health professionals, based in community settings like health centres who can support children and families at all maintained schools across Bedfordshire, but please note we are not permanently based in schools.
