School Entry Screening

During your child's Reception year, they will be offered a health review. Your child will bring home a school entry health questionnaire where you will able to highlight any health concerns. The school nursing team may contact you if further information is required. 

The health review includes:

  • height and weight measurements as part of the NCMP programme,
  • vision screening tests, conducted by our school health screeners.  

We no longer offer routine hearing screening tests for all children, however should you have a concern with your child’s hearing, please contact us and we can arrange to complete a hearing screening test.  This can also be highlighted on the health questionnaire that will be sent prior to the screening as part of the school entry screening.  

Following the health review, if any concerns are raised the School Nursing Team may contact you to discuss this further.
