Did you know, exercise can help you feel happier and release stress, especially around exam time. Getting the recommended 60 minutes of exercise a day doesn’t need to be boring. Making time to get outside with family and friends, a few 20 minute walks/runs or even dancing around your room, can be as healthy as going to the gym for your basic healthy lifestyle.
Whatever your choice of exercise, check out these top tips to keep your mind and body healthy.
If you have any questions about your health or wellbeing and would like to speak to a School Nurse;
or reach out via social media @HCP4Barnet
School Nurses can help you understand and manage your physical health and emotional wellbeing. This means we can talk to you if you have health questions and give you support to help you feel better.
Sometimes we may need to refer you to other more specialist services, but we would only do this with your consent.
We are qualified nurses with lots of extra experience when helping children and young people. We provide a confidential service and will not share what we talk about with anyone unless we are worried that you may be hurt.
Our team works in all of the Barnet schools so you might only see your school nurse in the school health clinic a few times every term. Look out for our poster which will let you know when we will be in your school!
When we are not in your school you can still talk to us in our virtual clinics held term-time every Tuesday and Thursday from 17.00-19.00 (5-7pm) and Saturdays between 12.30-14.00. You can also contact us by email or the contact form for support during the school holidays.
If you want to talk to us about any health or wellbeing concerns please use the contact form or ask a member of the school staff to refer you to our School Health clinic.
This website aims to provide the most current health information but we would always recommend you speak to a parent/carer, teacher or health professional if you have any worries.
