my ds in reception had a letter in his bookbag from the school nurse with an appointment for me to go to his school health interview and a questionaire to fill in with all the usual questions eg hearing speech problems etc. most of the children saw the school nurse at the beginning of the year to be weighed and measured and hearing tests, my ds included. i was wondering why i now have to go in to speak to her, none of the other mums i have asked have had a letter. i am going to go in for the interview but i wanted to ask what i should expect and why they do interviews. my ds dosent have any problems and his reception teacher has never spoke of any problems she is having with him. can anyone give me any advice please.

Why don't you phone her and ask why she wants to do an interview?

I'm a school nurse and in our area we don't routinely do interviews. If a child has a chronic illness or condition, special needs, any physical problems or if the parent has indicated they want to see us about their child's health, then we'll arrange a visit.

his birthday is in january. i am going to ring her tomorrow and ask her because it sounds like she will be interviewing him anyway as there is a box i can tick on the letter if i am happy for him to be seen without me if i cant make it. thanks for answering

I was only asking his birthday as I know that some thing the nurse does can only be done when they are 5 so most children get done in reception but others with june/july/august birthdays not till year 1.
