School Health Services
All municipalities in Norway are required by law to provide health services such as Health Centers (helsestasjon), School Health Services, Youth clinics. The services are free of charge, and aim to be easy to access.
The School Health Service is a continuation of the Health Center program for preschoolers, and the child’s health record is transferred to the school nurse before Year 1.
The aim of the school health service is to promote health and well-being, prevent disease and promote a healthy environment for all children.
We work both at an individual, group and systemic level, and follow a standard national program, which includes: vaccines, health information, height/weight measurements, etc.
The School Health Services include a public health nurse, physiotherapist, occupational therapist and a school doctor.
We cooperate with other professionals within the municipality, as well as external services. We participate in interdisciplinary meetings, and cooperate with the school in agreement with the parents. We are restricted by laws of confidentiality.
If your child has followed any other vaccination program than the Norwegian child immunization program, please inform the school nurse about this. We are able to offer vaccines according to the Norwegian program.
