Our Public Health Nursing 5-19 (School nursing) team have written to families with children in Reception who attend a mainstream Hertfordshire school, asking them to complete an online health assessment for their child. The letter will contain a link to the form and your unique login. The health assessment will help the service to respond to any identified health needs or worries.
The assessment asks about several aspects of child’s life that can impact on their health such as lifestyle and behaviour and helps the skilled public health nursing team to make an assessment of a child’s needs.
The team may then contact families to discuss concerns and offer support and advice in areas that are identified.
There’s further information on our website about our services and how we can help your child.
The assessment can be completed between now and 30 June. We’d encourage parents to complete this as soon as possible so the team can offer any additional support children may require.
