School Nurses

Hello, our names are Maggie (Mclinden) and Victoria (Carnegie), we’re your School Nurse Team. We want your child to be the healthiest they can. We can help with things, like bed wetting, healthy teeth, managing infections, emotional wellbeing, healthy eating and exercise.

We hope you’ve all had a good summer holiday, here are our Autumn term tips.

  • Back to school is a busy time, so get the family back into a good routine to manage everything that’s going on.
  • Make sure your child is getting enough sleep. Did you know most children need 10 hours sleep a night?
  • Check out the children’s page in the information section on The Sleep Charity’s website (

If you have a question for us, we have a confidential text messaging service called ChatHealth (text 07480 635515). This is open Mon-Fri 9am-5pm and is staffed by the School Nursing team.
