East Ipswich School Nursing Team

School nurses work across health and education to provide a link between home, school and the community for the benefit of the child, young person and their families. The school nursing service aims to promote the physical, mental and emotional health and well-being of the school age population, thereby enabling them to achieve their full potential in life. Young people can access their school nurse at the local clinic or by asking at their school office. Each school nurse holds a weekly drop-in at high schools which can be accessed independently by young people. School nurses also hold regular drop-in sessions for parents at primary schools.
