School Nurse

The allocated school nurse for Unified Academy is part of a team of school nurses, school staff nurses and school health advisors. They work for ‘Children and Family Health Surrey’ – a Surrey wide NHS community health service.

School nurses will work with staff at Unified Academy to identify any pupils who may benefit from support to help them live healthy lives. This work will include health promotion lessons, signposting to services outside of school and working with other agencies involved with children and their families.

School nurses aim to promote health and emotional wellbeing through:

  • Delivering classroom based health education
  • Completing health reviews on children as required
  • Providing health advice to children
  • Being available to children, parents and staff to address any concerns about a child’s health
  • Holding health drop-ins which offer children an opportunity to discuss health issues confidentially

We also run Chat Health which is a confidential health advice and support line – 07507 329951.

Pupils can text the number and will get a reply from one of the nurses on duty from Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
