 Help is at hand...


Dear Parents, Carers and Young People,

We are aware that it is a very anxious time and there may be concerns about where to access support in coming weeks should there be school closures or you needing to self isolate.
As a school nursing service we would like to let you know we are here to support you during this time.

For parents of any school age child:
We have duty school nurses available at the end of the phone Monday to Friday 9-5pm should you require any support with your school age child. This is available permanently for all parents to access for advice and support. If you would like support please call one of our nurses through our Single Point of access on 0300 247 0090


School Nursing Service


Dear Parents, Carers and Young People,
I have just recently been informed of a triage centre for families that have come in to crisis or are needing extra help due to being in the Shielding category. 
School and families are able to contact the service for help, advice and signposting.  
"The triage system has been set up called 3SG Somerset Third Sector Group and offer advice and support covering a range of needs, eg. food deliveries, housing. This may be helpful if a parent or carer speaks with you asking for advice regarding a specific difficulty they are experiencing. The contact number is:0300 247 0050."
