Locala’s School Nursing Teams work in partnership with families, education, social care and other health professionals, to support children and young people to ensure that their health needs are being met.

School Nursing teams consist of registered Nurses with an additional specialist School Nursing Qualification. In some areas they are supported by School Staff Nurses, who are registered Nurses and School Nurse Assistants.

There are six School Nursing teams in Locala covering the whole of Kirklees and Calderdale. Each team works cooperatively to cover the schools in their geographical area.
