All secondary schools hold a school nurse drop in and this page has information on what day you can see your School Nurse in school and where you can find them in the school.
This is a session in school where you can drop in and see a member of the school nurse team and talk about anything that concerns you about your emotional, physical or sexual health. In some schools you do not need an appointment you just turn up at the venue and wait to be seen, at other schools you may need to make an appointment. If you would like to know more on what it is like to see a school nurse please watch our video

Yes, most of the time.
If you're 13 years old or older we don't need to tell anybody we're seeing you, or tell anybody why, if we believe that you are Fraser Competent. This means that we believe you understand the decisions you're making, and possible consequences for these.
If you're under the age of 13 then school nurses will need to inform your parent/carer that we're seeing you. The exception is if we believe you to be at risk of significant harm or posing risk of significant harm to somebody else. If this was the case we would need to share information with other professionals, however we will always try and tell you first.
