Introduction to The Special Schools Nurse
My name is Martha Callaghan and I am the Special School’s Nurse for Ryedale and Scarborough.
I support school, parents/carers and the pupils with any health needs pupils may have, working closely with other health professionals, social care and the private sector. I provide Individual Health Care Plans for those with a specific health needs and training for school staff in relation to this.
I attend Educational, Health and Care Plan meetings for pupils with health needs. I support schools with health promotion and offer pupil/parent drop in sessions so they can come and discuss anything that is concerning them about their health.
