NDM6320 Debate: The School Nursing Framework

NDM6320 Jane Hutt (Vale of Glamorgan)

To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:


1. Notes the publication of The School Nursing Framework for Wales 2017.

2. Notes that the new framework was co-produced with front line school nurses and directly took account of the views of school age children.

3. Notes that there is currently an identified school nurse in each secondary school and associated feeder primary school and that the framework recommends that school children in Wales have extended access throughout the year including school holidays and provides universal standards for service provision.

4. Notes that the framework is a key component and foundation to the Healthy Child Wales Programme (0-7 years) and a platform for potential phased extension to older age groups.
