School Nursing Team – Ages 5 to 19

Who are we?

Our Doncaster school nursing team is a group of experienced qualified nurses and support workers who support young people aged 5-19 years and their families to stay healthy.

We work in partnership with other health service and education providers, and other wider social care and voluntary services for children young people and families.

How can we help?

We appreciate that life can be tough as a young person, dealing with pressure from school, home and friendship groups and sometimes just feeling like no one understands you. Sometimes you may feel lost and wonder what to do or wonder were to go and who you can talk too? If you feel like you want someone to understand and care, we want you to know your school nurse is there!

It’s impossible to list all the things we can help with here but we have summarised some of the keys we support young people with on a regular basis. Please remember no problem is too small and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

  • Keeping healthy (physical, emotionally and sexually)
  • Emotional health (dealing with life’s ‘ups and downs’, including problems with relationships, friendships, bullying, self-harm and eating disorders)
  • Weight management
  • Sexual health
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Smoking.
