The School Nursing Special Needs (SNSN) team
Hello, my name is Janet Robertshaw and I am the Nurse attached to Beechcliffe School. I visit school daily to help ensure that your child’s holistic health needs are met while they are receiving their education. I work as part of the School Nursing Special Needs team to support and promote the physical, mental and emotional health of the pupils. Healthy, happy children get the most out of their education and our goal is to help all children achieve this. Other members of the SNSN team also come into Beechcliffe.
Meet the rest of the team
Mary and Kath are our Team Leaders. Mary comes into school for meetings and to give children their medication when I am not in school.
Kath helps too, particularly when it is time for immunisations.
Mary and Kath help ensure that our Service is effectively and efficiently delivered, adhering to the Government’s ‘vision’ for school nursing services.
|Tina is the Learning Disability lead on the team. Along with Kath and Mary, she also helps to ensure that our service is efficiently delivered and is adhering to the government’s school nursing vision. She is helping to develop our service so that we can communicate better with all children, so they can have a ‘voice’ within our service and meet their needs holistically. She helps parents, carers and children to have their say about the service received from us, and works with individual children and groups around particular issues they may have, developing tailored communication packages for these.|
Jannette is a Healthcare Support Worker and Saima a Health Care Assistant. Saima helps me by weighing and measuring children. Jannette reassesses your children’s continence needs, helps me to train school staff and makes sure that we don’t run out of supplies. She also helps deliver health promotion sessions and sometimes comes with me on home visits.
