Children in reception will be screened in addition to the NCMP, for their vision and hearing. If you do not consent to your child being screened as part of the programme, it is important that you let school know and our single point of contact (0300 218 997) before the day of screening.

This is so that your child’s health records can be updated and ensures your child will not be screened.

The screening results will be sent home with your child on the day of screening. If they have had an unsatisfactory result, we will contact you to discuss a possible referral to ophthalmology and or audiology.

In the case of an unsatisfactory audiology screen, we will arrange to retest your child 6 weeks after the initial screening.

If you have questions in relation to any of our screening programmes, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 0300 218 997.
