School Nurse Service

Many parents will already know that the referral process for children to be seen by a paediatrician at Snapdragons is now done through the School Nurse Service.


Parents can ask to have a consultation with our link school nurse by contacting Mr Riley (SENCO) or Vacancy (Early Help Worker).


We do ask that parents try strategies from the Medway Hopscotch Manual for a cycle of 6 weeks to see if difficulties are reduced.


Should a child continue to present with difficulties in one or more of these areas then a referral will be made to the School Nursing Service through the school via Mr Riley or Mrs Byrne.


The team will then assess on a case by case basis the child, and they will decide if a child progresses onto a given pathway.


New Road Primary School will continue to implement strategies, providing support in and out of class regardless of a diagnosis.


 The school nursing service accepts referrals for a wide range of conditions. We provide advice and support with:


Emotional wellbeing (low level e.g. exam anxiety, self-esteem; poor body image; ‘panic attacks’; friendships; parental separation

Health conditions preventing a child accessing school - we can support the school in developing a care plan, although this remains the responsibility of the school

Healthy diet and lifestyle

Online safety
