Support for children aged 5-11

Whether your child has just started primary school or they are moving from primary to secondary, the 0-19 team are here to offer you advice, support and information to help you and your family be as healthy as possible.

All children are offered the following assessments:

In Reception Year

  • You will be asked to complete a health questionnaire, this helps us to know if your child has any health issues that we can support you with.
  • We can offer an assessment of your child’s hearing and vision if there are any concerns.
  • We carry out an assessment of your child’s weight and height

In Year 6

  • A further assessment of weight and height

Flu Vaccination

  • All children in years reception, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are offered a flu vaccination provided by the Locala Immunisation team.

You don’t need to contact us to arrange these assessments, we will write to you to let you know when they are happening. They will be done in school during normal school hours.

If your child is not attending a school setting you can contact us on 0300 304 5555 or via the “Request Support” button below and we will offer these services to you in a clinic.

Being a parent can be full of challenges and you may need extra help from time to time.

We are here to offer help when you need it, for example, if your child is having difficulties with their eating, toileting or emotional health. We can also help parents/carers with issues such as finding support for their own emotional health, parenting and behaviour management support.

A range of FREE online courses are now available to support you and those around you who are helping care for your child. These include a course on Understanding Your Child. For details visit the TKparents page.

If you and your family find you are having significant difficulties, for example if your child has a special educational need or disability (SEND), a medical condition, or perhaps there are concerns about the safely of your child, the 0-19 team will be involved in ensuring your child is safe and getting the services and care they need.

If you have any questions you can contact us on 0300 304 5555 or use the “Request Support” button below.

The height and weight measurement taken in reception and year 6 forms part of the national child measurement programme (NCMP).  See here for further information.
