Brighton & Hove Youth Service

School Nurse.pdfNHS.JPG​School nurses are health professionals who work in partnership with young people, parents, school staff and other services to help achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people.


As students you can speak to your Form Tutor or Head of Year if you have any worries or concerns and they may arrange for you to speak to someone from one of these groups or you can contact services directly such as Allsorts and RUOK. You can also look at the PSHE Info Wall on the SLG for more sources of advice and support from local and national groups and more information about student wellbeing services in school
