Health Checks and Vaccinations

 

At Green Oaks we engage with a range of services offered by the School Nursing Service including:

Year R Screening

All children in Year R are offered a health check in the term in which they turn five.

This is carried out by a School Nurse and includes a basic sight and hearing test. Permission forms are sent to parents before the check and if there are any concerns the School Nurse will contact parents directly.

Measurement Checks

All children in Year 6 are offered a height and weight measurement check.

This is carried out by a School Nurse and results of this test can be obtained from the Nursing team. Permission forms are sent to parents before the check and if there are any concerns the School Nurse will contact parents directly.

Vaccinations

It is important that your child’s vaccinations are up to date as not having recommended vaccinations can place your child and others at risk of serious illness.

Parents are offered vaccinations for their children through the School Nursing Service as and when recommended. This includes the annual flu vaccination. Vaccinations will only be given with parental permission.

Noticeboard
