The International School of Billund is covered by the municipality's healthcare programme for children. As such, we are able to offer the following services via our school nurse:
- P1: Examination consisting of individual health interviews including measurement of height and weight as well as sight, hearing and colour vision tests.
- P2: Healthcare teaching programme – content and scope to be agreed with the school nurse.
- P4: Health interviews, individually or in groups. Measurement of height and weight.
- Individual health interviews with children, young people and families with special needs.
- Healthcare teaching initiatives arranged between the school nurse and the school administration – for example, group programmes for overweight children, sex education, etc.
The objectives of the school nurse are:
- To provide children and young people (individually and in groups) with a range of programmes during their time at school to help ensure that they are able to relate to – and act appropriately with regard to – their own health and that of others.
- To provide examinations designed to identify illnesses and/or developmental anomalies and to recommend appropriate remedial measures and treatment, if necessary.
- To identify children and young people with special needs and focus more closely on them, in collaboration with other appropriate contributors.
- To collect knowledge about the healthcare conditions in a class or at a school, with a view to advising teachers, the school administration and/or municipal partners, and to taking the initiative to launch relevant measures targeted at improving health at individual and group level.
- To work with the school’s teachers and administration in the context of the children’s health.
