Event Details

When your child is in Reception class…
Height, Weight, Vision and Hearing Screening
All children will have their height and weight measured. We also check their
distance vision and hearing. Parents and carers are informed of their
child’s results. Results which may have an effect on your child’s learning
(hearing or vision) will be shared with their class teacher. Some retests
maybe offered in a clinic setting. Any child moving into the area who has no
evidence of being screened elsewhere will have their vision and hearing
checked in Reception. We will check their vision if they are in Years 1 and
If you do not wish your child to be seen, or your child is currently attending
a vision or hearing clinic and you do not wish us to screen them, please
contact us within two weeks of receiving this leaflet.
Online health questionnaire
We will ask you to complete a questionnaire, online, about their health and
wellbeing. This is called The Lancaster Model. Once you have completed
this we may contact you to discuss your child’s health. Children also
complete an online health assessment in Year 6. For more information
