Reception screening

Reception screening

When your child starts school the Health Visitor will transfer your child’s care to the School Nursing Service in the Borough that your child attends school. The Sutton School Nursing Service offers health screening to all children starting in Reception in a London Borough of Sutton school.

The health screening consists of a parent’s questionnaire which you will be asked to complete about your child and return to the School Nursing Service. The questionnaire may be given to you on your introductory meeting with the School or sent home in your child’s bag shortly after they start. This helps the School Nurse to identify any concerns you may have about your child and provide you with support. If you have any concerns about your child and would like to speak to a School Nurse in preparation for starting school please contact the School Nursing Team on 0208 661 3904
