Health in School
East Sussex School Health Service
East Sussex School Health Service has a focus on promoting the health and wellbeing of all school-aged children. They provide a number of in-school health programmes and initiatives. They can complete a health assessment with you and your child to identify the most appropriate intervention and potential outcome and we will work with you to achieve this.
All schools have a School Health Team.
School Health Teams are led by registered, qualified nurses who have a specialist community public health degree. The team consists of community staff nurses, assistant practitioners, health improvement staff, school nurse assistants and administrators.
