We offer a wide range of additional supports for our pupils and families as part of a nurture package. We offer a lunchtime club in our hub; a special time for pupils to enjoy eating their lunch with an adult. The lunch hour can be a long time for some children and having a ‘check-in’ with an adult can really help. Children attend nurture lunch for various reasons-they may need a confidence boost, need time to talk to an adult or just need a quieter space to eat their lunch. We also offer a range of intervention groups across the school as well as more bespoke help for individuals within class.
School Nursing Service
Currently, the School Nursing Team will not be offering any further advice clinics for parents and carers in schools following a review of their service.
Parents are able to self-refer to ‘Healthy Together’ via the School Nursing office number, 0116 215 6795 or referrals can be made through school via a new electronic referral system.
School Nursing Service – Chat Health
The School Nursing Service also offers a text messaging service where parents and carers of children aged 0-19 years can get confidential advice and support with behaviour, parenting, child development, emotional health and wellbeing (self-harm) and bullying), minor accidents and illnesses and general health queries.
The contact number is 07520 615382. This is a TEXT ONLY service and is not an emergency service. It is available between 9.00am – 5.00pm Monday – Friday. Texts will not be seen outside working hours but you should recieve a reply (a ‘bounce-back’) to confirm receipt of a text sent within one working day. For urgent medical attention please contact your GP or call 111 or 999.
