PRESS RELEASE

Sharon White - Tuesday, June 18, 2019 -

Press release

At our annual conference to be held at Manchester Metropolitan University today, the School and Public Health Nurses Association (SAPHNA) call on the Government to urgently invest to provide one qualified school nurse per high school and per cluster of primary schools underpinned by a skill-mixed team.

This to further enable their key role in addressing the rising childhood obesity crisis, supporting pupils in schools with medical needs and supporting the

delivery of the forthcoming statutory Relationship and Sex Education.

 

They welcome Teresa May’s statement of yesterday to commit to train all school staff in the mental health of pupils and to provide schools with counsellors;

this mirroring the decision made by the Scottish Government two years ago who are making significant investment in their School Nursing workforce so they

can deliver tier 1 and tier 2 mental health services; this also a must in England if we truly want to witness a sea change in our children’s future mental health

and well being
