Audiology 

Primary schools

Reception
This usually takes place at school during the Spring term (with any follow up in the Summer term).

Hearing screenings play an important role in identifying children who may have hearing loss.  The child will be asked to wear headphones and the examiner will measure soundwaves by asking them to react when hearing a sound such as raising their hand.

Primary schools

Nursery (age 3+), Reception and Year 1
We are delighted to be part of Enfield's Oral Health programme.  This usually takes place at school during the Autumn term with a follow-up in the Spring term. 

This process involves inspection of a child's teeth followed by a small amount of fluoride varnish being applied to the teeth as means of preventing tooth decay.
The varnish has a fruity taste and is painted onto the tooth with a small brush and dries instantly

Further information about the fluoride varnish programme

Measurements

Primary schools

Reception and Year 6
This usually takes place at school during the Spring term.

Local authorities are required to collect children's height and weight measurements as part of the National Child Measurement Programme to monitor national trends in child obesity and support local public health initiatives.
Whilst some information relating to pupils will routinely be shared, parents will be provided with the opportunity to opt-out of the programme.
