The School Health Service offers screening of height and weight for Foundation Stage and Year 6. Parents will have the option to opt out of this check if they wish to. The purpose of the School Health Service is to support children in reaching their full potential educationally and not be disadvantaged through ill-health. Throughout the child’s school life, the nursing team responds to any parental concerns and provides information and advice on health matters within the school; the emphasis is always on promoting a healthy lifestyle.
