All of our sessions can be adapted for learners with special educational needs. We're always happy to discuss your specific requirements.
Sessions for Nursery and Reception children last for 30 minutes and all other sessions last for 60 minutes.
As a charity, we need to make sure our limited resources are used as efficiently as possible. Therefore, we like to deliver to as many year groups as we can in one visit, to make the best use of our nurses’ time and reduce our travel costs - We appreciate in advance your support in trying to arrange as many sessions as possible.
If you’re unable to arrange multiple sessions, we would value time to deliver a whole school assembly.
For all sessions, (excluding assemblies), each child will need to be equipped with paper and writing material and we recommend holding the session in a classroom environment.
Please note, a teacher/adult supervisor MUST be present at all times to supervise the class.
Please be advised that we do not bring live animals to our sessions. This is to ensure our nurses’ focus is on the learning and the pupils.
What schools say about our visits:
Cockton Primary School
'The content was excellent and it fit nicely with current priorities in school such as respect, responsibility and British values. The children were all engaged for the whole session – lovely resources and a friendly speaker, who pitched all questions perfectly for Y2 children. Thank you!'
Collingwood Primary School
'A great session! Pitched at the right level for our children with careful use of vocabulary. They all thoroughly enjoyed it. A nice mix of teaching aids including; PowerPoint, videos and practical activities. Brilliant!'
We'll do our best to fulfil as many requests as possible, but in the event that we can't visit, we'll send you a link to our fantastic resources to deliver your own sessions.
