school nurses

Staffing levels in primary and secondary schools across England have dropped 26% since 2010.
We all remember our days at school - our teachers, our friends, the moment the bell rang for break time. As children it's where we spend most of our time, the place where we build not only our academic skills but our knowledge of life and how to live it. But for some children and young people this experience is not quite the same.
Everyone who works with children wants to help and protect them. But as a recent report revealed that only one in 8 cases of child sexual abuse is being reported, something is clearly not working.
The UK is shockingly behind other developed countries in terms of children's health outcomes, with five more children dying per day than in Sweden. So many health issues facing our children are preventable - yet the Government has just cut £200 million from public health spending and with it many of the resources we need to educate children about their health.
