School Nurse


Trafford North Area School Nursing Team

The Trafford School Nursing Service aims to promote the health of school-aged children. All children from Reception year to year 11 who attend a Trafford school or who are not on a school roll but live in Trafford (for instance, Home Educated children) are offered a service.

Children are routinely offered growth screening in Reception and Year 6 and hearing screening in Reception. The School Nursing Service also supports the delivery of the immunisation programme in secondary schools.

The service can offer information, advice, support and referral to specialist agencies to children, young people and families on a range of health-related issues including medical conditions, behavioural difficulties and lifestyle issues. The service is delivered through health promotion activities, drop-in services in primary and secondary schools and one-to-one contacts.

The service can be accessed directly by parents/carers, children/young people themselves or through referral from other professionals.

If you have any concerns about your child or need advice or support on a variety of health related conditions such as asthma, diabetes, enuresis, anxiety, speech and language, audiology or weight, the best way to contact the School Nurse is through school. Alternatively, you can contact a member of the School Nurse Team on 0161-549-6290.

(Please leave a message if not answered and a member of the team will phone you back as soon as possible).
