Understanding your child is one of the most important things that you should learn as a parent. It is very helpful in becoming effective in guiding and nurturing your child as they grow and mature. You need to bear in mind that your child has a unique personality trait that remains consistent throughout life.
School Nurses are an amazing resource that often gets overlooked but are still supporting schools and families.
The team offers health advice to teachers, children and parents/carers. Support is available for all health related issues including: allergies, bullying and emotional health, sleep problems and behaviour issues, healthy eating and lifestyles, growth and development, bedwetting, soiling and constipation. If necessary, with your consent, a referral may be made to other NHS and partner services.
