Overall the school health department works with planned health checks and vaccinations. It should not be used as your local doctors.
All children in the Foundation Class are invited to a meeting with the school nurse together with the parents in the Spring term to see the health department.
After this first visit the School nurse will see all pupils in Year 2,4 and 7 individually. On these occasions the school nurse will weigh and measure the pupils and there will also be a talk about health. There are 3 vaccinations where parents give consent.
In between there will of course be ongoing visits as needed. Before the visit for Year 4 and 7 the pupil and the parent will fill in a health form with questions. According to the new directions from Socialstyrelsen and Folkhälsomyndigheten the School nurse should also collect information from the teacher concerning how the pupil learns, how the pupil is relating to other pupils and how the pupil seems to be doing physically and psychologically. When needed the pupil will also meet with the School doctor. The information that the school nurse has about the pupils is strictly confidential and is under the same laws as any other health care.
Vaccination is given in Year 2 for MMR. (Measles, mumps and rubella. The 20/21 year 2 have already had theirs) Year 5 boys and girls will have HPV. (20/21 just the y6 girls). Some changes can occur depending on where the pupil comes from. The vaccination programs can vary from country to country.
