The special schools nursing team promotes the health and wellbeing of children and young people in Barnet with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The team’s priority is to help pupils achieve their potential in school by supporting them  and their families with their health needs.

The nurses are experienced in supporting children and adults with learning disabilities. Working closely with education, social care and other healthcare professionals, the nurses help care for pupils with complex health needs and medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, allergies and epilepsy.

They also give advice to help parents and special schools to manage children’s medical conditions and provide training and support for teachers and teaching assistants on specific issues like asthma, epilepsy and allergies.

Their work also includes:
•    continence management and advice
•    safeguarding
•    health promotion
•    administering regular and emergency medication
•    health care plans
•    enteral feeding
•    developmental checks to monitor pupils' height and weight as required for specific children 

The schools we cover are: Mapledown, Oakleigh, Oak Lodge and Northway. All pupils at any of the four special schools in Barnet are eligible to use the service. 

We also provide specialist training to Acorn nursery.
