Warwickshire schools health and wellbeing service
This is a service which is easy to access, friendly, confidential and free for all school-aged children (five to 19 years/25 years with special educational needs and disabilities) and their families.
The service provides information, advice and follow-up support on a wide range of health-related topics such as physical health, emotional health and wellbeing, healthy lifestyles including healthy eating and physical activity.
If your child has additional needs, for example, a learning need, disability or long-term health condition (for example epilepsy, asthma and diabetes); we can help you get the right care and support you need.
We also conduct a health questionnaire for children aged 4 to 5 years old which is completed by parents/carers. Health questionnaires for children and young people aged 10 to 11 years and 13 to 14 years can be completed by the children themselves and inform the types of support they would like to receive from our service.
The service would like to encourage you and your child to take part in the questionnaires and will offer follow up support for anyone who asks for help or if an additional need is identified. All information will remain confidential within the school health service.
If you need information and advice relating to the health of your school-aged child or would like to complete a health questionnaire, please contact us on 0330 024 5204 Option 1 Central, Option 2 South, Option 3 North or warwickshireSH&[email protected]
We will be happy to answer any questions.
Important information about school-aged vaccinations
A number of free immunisations available on the NHS are provided in schools rather than through GP practices. These help protect against serious diseases including cancer and meningitis. Parents of home educated children can also access these important immunisations for their children.
Please view the link below to the school vaccination letter for more information.
