The RCN recognises the importance and value of school nurses working in all educational settings. This toolkit will support school nurses in developing their roles in practice, management and leadership to improve health outcomes for children and young people in the school environment. It is aimed at school nurses and commissioners of school nursing services to provide guidance on the scope of the school nursing role. It is relevant across mainstream, independent and boarding schools, providing links to the evidence underpinning the benefits of school nursing provision.
