The school health questionnaire that parents are asked to complete for each child in Reception Year is changing. Barnet Council are replacing the paper questionnaires with an electronic version which can be accessed by all parents via the Health Matters website: https://healthmatters.clch.nhs.uk/ or via the link below:-
Research has shown that parents prefer information electronically. In recognition of the fact that this is a new process and not everyone may have access to the internet to complete the questionnaire, there will be a few paper copies which will be available to parents on request.
In following the Healthy Child Programme recommendations from the Department of Health, the council aim to offer a series of screening programmes including individual health reviews along with health promoting activities.
All health-related information is kept confidential but in some instances (i.e. vison and hearing screening results and some medical conditions that require management in school, i.e. asthma) which may be shared on a need-to-know basis with some other services including the school, to be able to better support your child in school.
If you do not wish your child to be seen by the School Health Service please e-mail us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support.
