Parent/Carers of Current Year 1 Pupils-
During your child’s reception year in school they would have been offered via the school health service a screening of height/weight/hearing/vision, however due to Covid and national direction screenings were paused.
We have worked in partnership with education and had planned to visit your child’s school in Jan 2021 to offer their screening. However due to current National Restrictions and Schools remote learning we are unable at present to complete this programme.
In the meantime, if you have any concerns regarding your child height/weight/hearing/vision you can contact your school nurse via the school nurse referral form accessible from your school.
We have provided some signs/symptoms that will help you identify if your child does require a referral rather than wait for the screening programme.
We would also like to sign post you towards the NDCS website, which has a wealth of useful information.
