We offer a Young Persons Drop-in Clinic every Thursday lunch time in IFC1.
No appointment needed, just turn up on your own, or bring a friend if you wish.
Due to Covid-19 safety procedures, the times of our drop in clinic has changed:
- All KS3 students must make an appointment for between 12:45 and 13:45
- Year 10 students may go to room 30 between 12:15 and 12:45
- Year 11 students in MFL6 between 13:15 and 13:45.
The principle aim of the drop in clinic is to provide a confidential advice service on a range of issues for young people, within the school environment. Support could include advice on sexual health issues, emotional health and well-being (e.g. self-harm), healthy lifestyles and alcohol safety. Young people will also have access to the c-card scheme, contraception and chlamydia screening kits. Other schools in the area already offer this service and have noticed that young people are encouraged to make healthier life choices, self-esteem is raised and they are more confident when using mainstream health and welfare services.
The clinic is run by a qualified nurse and each young person is individually assessed to ensure the most appropriate support and advice can be offered.
If you have any questions or queries about this health clinic then please contact the school nursing team on 01278 410044.
