The Isle of Wight School Nursing team receive health records from Health Visitors to enable them to continue to perform health checks and offer support to children and their families throughout their school years.

As a service we aim to offer professional advice and guidance on different aspects of your child's development and emotional well being and support the child and family through their school years.

During reception year, we offer each child a vision, hearing and growth review, and refer to specialist clinics should your child require further interventions. 

We are also commissioned to undertake the 'National child measurement programme' for children in reception and year 6.

As health care professionals we provide a confidential service to children and their families. However, as safeguarding the children is our main priority, if we feel concerned for the safety of a child, we will share information regarding our concerns to other agencies involved in their care. Where possible we will aim to discuss this with you before sharing any information on.
