Drop-in at school
All secondary schools hold a school nurse drop in and this page has information on what day you can see your School Nurse in school and where you can find them in the school.
This is a session in school where you can drop-in and see a member of the school nurse team and talk about anything that concerns you about your emotional, physical or sexual health.
In most schools you do not need an appointment you just turn up at the venue and wait to be seen. At other schools you may need to make an appointment. If you would like to know more on what it is like to see a school nurse please watch our video

In some secondary schools, drop-ins can also cover:
- C Scheme: If you’re aged between 13 and 24 you can sign up for the C-Scheme. The scheme gives you access to a choice of free condoms (different sizes, flavours and textures), dams and lube. You can access the service however you identify and whatever your sexual orientation. It doesn't matter whether you’re having sex, thinking about having sex or if you’re just curious
- Pregnancy testing
- Chlamydia tests
- Emergency contraception
- Just drop-in when the drop-ins are running. If it's busy, you may have to wait in a queue
- Speak to your school who may make a referral or have a booking system
- Text ChatHealth to arrange an appointment on 07507 330025
Yes, most of the time.
If you're 13 years old or older we don't need to tell anybody we're seeing you, or tell anybody why, if we believe that you are Fraser Competent. This means that we believe you understand the decisions you're making, and possible consequences for these.
If you're under the age of 13 then school nurses will need to inform your parent/carer that we're seeing you. The exception is if we believe you to be at risk of significant harm or you are posing a risk of significant harm to somebody else. If this was the case we would need to share information with other professionals, however we will always try and tell you first.
