It has been brought to our attention that some parents are receiving texts from people saying they are from the School Nurse Team and asking for personal information to be verified.


School Nurses do not send text messages as their first contact with parents.

If you receive a text message requesting information about your child from anyone purporting to be a School Nurse, please DO NOT engage.

To check the validity of any request received, please contact the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service Single Point of Access:

Mid Essex 0300 247 0014 (option 2)

South Essex 0300 247 0013
