Message to Reception parents - The Kent School Public Health team wishes all the new starters in reception good luck for their first year at school. Reception year is an important time for your child as they settle into school life. Children are offered three health checks in reception including hearing, vision and height and weight. We also ask ALL YEAR R parents to complete an online health and development review to help identify any health needs your child may have, so support can be put in place for them. We work in partnership with KCC so you will have received emails from them about this.
We offer health and development review questionnaires for children in YEAR R to help us to identify any health needs early so action plans and support can be put in place to give children the best start possible in primary school. A child may have a long-term medical condition, like diabetes, asthma or anaphylaxis, behavioural needs, or perhaps need counselling to cope with bereavement or a relationship problem. We want to support children to reach their full potential by identifying and supporting them with these needs.
To complete the survey, please click this link https://kent.hapi-system.com/school-entry. The survey should take around 15 minutes and you will need to enter the password/location where your child’s school is located (please note, the link and passwords are case sensitive):
School Location Password
Ashford, Dover, Folkestone & Hythe- South2020
Dartford, Gravesham, Sevenoaks North2020
Maidstone, Tonbridge & Malling, Tunbridge Wells West2020
Canterbury, Thanet, Swale East2020
Open until the 30th of November
Once you have completed the survey you will receive a link to additional advice and guidance. Depending on your answers, a qualified School Nurse may also contact you to offer further support. Don’t worry – the School Public Health Service is here to help.

Important FSM information: Kent County Council has announced vouchers for food are available during half-term for families whose children are eligible for benefits related free school meals, so that no Kent child goes hungry.
A dedicated helpline has been set up. Families who apply will receive one supermarket voucher of £15 per child.
Anyone eligible for free school meals who needs extra financial support to help feed their children can now visit www.kent.gov.uk/freeschoolmealsor call the dedicated helpline on 03000 41 24 24. Families have until next Monday 2nd November 5pm to apply.
Speaking after today’s announcement, Mr Gough said: “Kent County Council and our partners in district and borough councils have already helped thousands of Kent residents, including families with school-aged children, since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the weekend, with the half-term holiday approaching, I reminded residents about the help the Kent Together helpline and webpage offer and urged anyone who was struggling to contact us. This dedicated helpline will streamline and speed up the process so we can get urgent help to those that need it. This support for families in need has always been in place. I hope, though, that this helpline will enable people who need urgent help to get it, and to get it quickly. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we support the most vulnerable within our community. I hope that this service will quickly provide families with the help they need and ensure that no child in Kent is left to go hungry.”
