School Nurse

The School Health Nurse, Claire Smith, is employed by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and is based at Chiltern Edge to help keep students healthy.

Claire helps support the physical and emotional health and wellbeing of young people. It is a confidential health service (although she may need to share information if the pupil, or others, are at risk – the pupil will be told if she needs to do this).

Claire is able to provide advice on healthy choices, for example healthy eating, dental health, sexual health and substance misuse. Healthy lifestyles are promoted, including diet and exercise.

So that all pupils are able to continue to enjoy their education at school, Claire undertakes health reviews and specific support for young people with complex needs, such as diabetes and asthma. Claire works in partnership with outside agencies to promote the rights and educational needs of young carers.

The service can be accessed Monday- Friday, 9:00 am – 3:00 pm, with drop in clinics during Monday lunchtimes or during any other break/lunchtime when she is available. Appointments can be made via email, text, or phone.
