The School Health Service is your Child's Occupational Health Service

What are the goals of the School Health Service?
We work to maintain and, if possible, improve children's health. We are on-site and easy to reach if you or your child need our help.

The School Health Service is a part of the school
We liaise with staff members but are bound by strict professional secrecy. You are assured that nothing you or your child say is conveyed to anyone else without your consent. This also applies to forms you fill in or written messages.

How does the School Health Service work?
The School Health Service is mainly preventive. It includes health check-ups and minor health care which are then documented. Health check-ups are done on all children in pre-school, years 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, those who need a follow-up and those who have not ever had a health check-up by the School Health Service.

The school nurse documents growth and development; has individual health talks; checks eyesight and the back on a regular basis and gives vaccinations.

The School Health Service is an important part of the Student Care Team.

When is the doctor here?
The school doctor is available by appointment on a regular basis every other Wednesday. Doctor's examinations are carried out:

  • on students in pre-school and grade 1 with a parent
  • if the school nurse or school doctor advise it
  • when the student or parent so desire

Vaccinations
All students in grade 4 are offered a boaster shot for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis.
All students in grade 6 are offered a boaster shot for measles, mumps and German measles.
Furthermore students are offered supplementary vaccinations if needed:

  • polio vaccination
  • diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis vaccination
  • measles/mumps/German measles vaccination

The vaccinations are optional and free of charge. Prior to every vaccination a written message is sent home with the student for parental consent. This should be signed and returned to the nurse immediately.

To all new students
Please hand in a copy of all previous vaccinations to the school nurse as soon as possible.
Please notify which children's clinic your child has attended (including telephone number) and if the student has attended a Swedish school, the name of the most recent school.

It is important for us to be able to reach you
There is always the possibility that your child could become ill or get hurt at school, in which case we need to be able to reach you. It is important, therefore, that we always have your daytime telephone number.

We look forward to co-operating with you concerning your child's health.
