School nurses work closely with pupils, parents, carers and teachers, offering support and advice on a range of issues. They play a vital role in children’s development, carrying out immunisation and screening programmes, managing medical conditions and acting as a point of contact on child protection issues.
School Nurses are based at Crawley Hospital and will visit the school on a regular basis or to meet with parents as arranged. Parents are able to contact the school nursing team directly by calling Crawley Hospital on 01293 600300 and asking for the school nursing team or by asking a member of the school office (Upper or Lower Site) to make the call for them.
If you are experiencing any problems or concerns and would like support, parents and carers are welcome to make an appointment to see the appropriate member of staff or to telephone the school office to arrange for someone to call you at a convenient time.
