Health Screening and Immunisations

Parents / Carers

At Reception age (school entry) your child will receive a health assessment. This includes a health questionnaire which will help the school nurse to identify:

  • If your child’s immunisations are up to date
  • If your child is registered with a dentist
  • If your child has any medical or health problems

Also at this time, your child will be offered vision and hearing screening and they will also have their height and weight measured as part of the National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP). A further health assessment will be completed in Year 6 on transition to high school.
