Secondary school student support

Service overview

Our trained school nurses provide young people at state secondary schools with a range of support.

Our school nursing teams across Surrey promote physical health and emotional wellbeing in schools and in the community. This includes issues such as sexual health, illnesses, bullying, healthy eating, exam stress and bullying

At secondary schools school nurses :

  • Provide health advice to help young people make the most of their education
  • Hold health drop-ins offering young people an opportunity to discuss health issues confidentially
  • Deliver classroom-based health education
  • Support immunisation programmes in school

In East Surrey we also offer a text service called ChatHealth, a confidential school nurse messaging service for students at school. Young people can contact their school nurse in confidence by text. The ChatHealth text number is: 07507 329 915.

In Mid Surrey we offer weekly drop-in sessions for young people at schools to talk about anything that may be worrying them.

All of the issues discussed are confidential unless a child's safety, or that of others, is at risk. Our school nurses will always encourage young people to discuss issues with their parents or guardians.
