Information for Students

There is now a telephone number for texting the School Nursing Team from your mobile phone. ChatHealth, the School Nurse messaging service, is confidential and available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. You can message for advice on all kinds of health issues, like sexual health, emotional health and wellbeing, bullying, healthy eating and any general health concerns. Look out for more information around school. You can still get in touch with a School Nurse in the same way as you might have done before, if you prefer.
