School nurses deliver one-off sessions on contraception, and sexually transmitted infections. These are offered to year 9, 10 or 11 pupils and the school will decide which year group to deliver this to.

 

The sessions all contain information around the law and sex, issues of consent, healthy relationships, clinic in a box, where to go for further help and advice and the opportunity to speak to a school nurse on a one to one basis following the session.

 

The sessions are tailored to individual school, e.g. special schools may have smaller group sizes with materials suitable to their understanding.

 

For young people between the ages of 13 and 16 who do not attend school, the school nurse can give information on all of the above during a face- to- face appointment at your local health clinic or can supply written information.
