Dear Parent / Carer Re: Year R Health Needs Assessment

The School Nursing Service routinely visits schools as part of the Healthy Child Programme and to support children and young people with a range of physical, developmental and emotional health needs. The Healthy Child Programme recommends a number of health and development reviews with a core purpose to:

• assess the child’s, young person’s and family’s strengths, needs and risks,

• give children, young people and parents/carers the opportunity to discuss their concerns and aspirations.

• assess physical health (inc. any medical needs), growth and development and immunisation status.

• assess any mental or emotional health issues.

• ensure that appropriate support is available to meet educational and health needs such as language and communication.

The School Nursing Service is inviting you to complete a Health Needs Assessment Questionnaire for your child. This is an opportunity to have your child’s health and development reviewed. We are now using an electronic method of communication which is a faster, more efficient, and safer way to deliver your child's health information.

Please take a few minutes to read the information provided. This will give you a clearer understanding of what it is we aim to deliver.
