School health care activities

School health care includes:

  • Monitoring pupil’s growth and development and promoting their health and wellbeing.
  • Supporting the pedagogical work of parents
  • Identifying the pupils’ need for support and health examinations, and referring them for further health examinations and treatment if necessary
  • Promoting and monitoring the health and safety of the school environment and the wellbeing of the entire school community
  • Multiprofessional pupil welfare work
  • Oral health care
  • Special health examinations necessary to determine the pupils’ state of health

Book an appointment at your health station for issues requiring acute medical attention. Appointment bookings for a school doctor are made through a school nurse.

Health check-ups

School health care includes annual health check-ups, of which 1st, 5th and 8th grade health examinations are extensive. Health check-ups always include individual health counselling.

We hope that parents / guardians will take part in extensive 1st, 5th and 8th grade health examinations. Parents are also welcome at other health inspections.

In addition to the pupil’s health and wellbeing, the school nurse and doctor always assess the wellbeing of the whole family in large-scale 1st, 5th and 8th grade health inspections. We discuss a wide range of issues with the family during the check-up, and together we go through the teacher’s assessment of the pupil’s presence at school.

The pupil’s health is also examined in the 8th grade check-up in terms of postgraduate studies and career choice.

In addition to appointment bookings, parents can send a message to the nurse about the child’s health using the e-services, as well as postpone or cancel their appointments electronically. Cancellations must be made no later than 1 day before the booked appointment.
