Health and welfare

Skagerak Primary and Middle school students are entitled to the same community services as all students in the local public schools.

Sandefjord kommune is reorganising their school nurse services and we are waiting for the confirmation of the new school nurse.

Primary School nurse

Ingrid Helene Carlsen
Office hours
mainly Fridays
Room 216, by the main reception

Individual appointments can be made - please contact the nurse directly.

The school health program, the same as for all public schools in Sandefjord, offers the following services:

  • help students to look after their own health and to meet their everyday challenges
  • together with parents, students and teachers, identify aspects in the school's environment important to the health and well-being of the students
  • guide parents in their parental role
  • aid students requiring assistance, referral or treatment, individually or in groups
  • prevent contagious diseases through a vaccination program and health education

Vaccination cards for MY4 students, for vaccinations administered from PY1 to MY4, are now available online through the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.

Students are called in for dental treatment by the fylke (county), based on the age of the child and the home address. Any questions about dental treatment should be made directly to the local dental clinic.

There is a liaison officer from the local police station assigned to the school.
