Better Care

Benefits of School Nursing


Individual schools have differing health-related needs and objectives, and your BCHC Plus service will be tailored to these. Your BCHC Plus school nurse will work to a shared action plan jointly agreed at the outset with school staff. Drawing together relevant information from the school and other sources, and clinical input from the nurse, the action plan is focused on achieving the additional outcomes that are most appropriate in your school.

BCHC Plus customers can prioritise how the time is to be used, in conjunction with their nurse. Many schools focus the time on health topics that lie outside the scope of the core service (e.g. health education). Others allocate some of the time to supplement certain aspects of the core service.

School health topics that we provide support for include the following:

• Curriculum input focused on health and wellbeing

• Issues arising in school that may have a link to health

• Health education and promotion activities for parents, families and the school’s wider community

• Dedicated support addressing a school’s wider health-related challenges

  • Liaison with GP’s, Health Visitors and other professionals.
