Primary School Health and Wellbeing

As a parent, you might feel a bit overwhelmed with so much to think about as your child develops and moves from pre-school to Primary School. Likewise, as a child, this can be equally as overwhelming too, with a new environment, a change in routine and sometimes friendships they have made. This is where they may need a bit of extra support and reassurance to help boost their self-esteem and confidence.

Health for Kids offers a fun, engaging, and interactive way for children to learn about health. Find fun games and learn lots more.

There is an area for adults – This will offer you health and advice to help your child grow and flourish. This information focuses on healthy minds, healthy bodies, health issues, and how to find help and support.

Should you or your child need urgent health advice please contact your GP or call NHS 111. In an emergency please visit A&E or call 999.


ChatHealth offers a simple, convenient and confidential text messaging service for parents of children and young people in Hampshire aged 5-19.

ChatHealth allows parents in Hampshire to text messages to a dedicated number 07507 332 417 ; the messages are then delivered to a secure website. Once received, the school nurse will respond to the text within one working day.
