Getting Ready for Change - Reception Year

Starting school or education is a wonderful and exciting time.  To help families prepare for this transition (change), local NHS healthcare professionals have created an online health questionnaire that can be your 'Getting Ready for Change' checklist.  This is for all children who will be reception aged.

It covers lots of points from hearing and eyesight through to emotional health and behaviour.  It also provides links to approved information and support.

You can access the questionnaire by using this link:

If you have any questions, you can contact the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Healthy Child Programme.  Call on 0300 029 50 50 or test 07520 649 887.
