Jake Pantony, healthy lifestyle coordinator for Connect for Health, said: "Starting school for the first time is a significant milestone for every child, and often a scary and exciting time for them and their parents/carers.

"Connect for Health want to make sure all children and families have the support they need with their health, wellbeing and development to prepare for this.

"That’s why we’re asking parents to complete the School Readiness Health Questionnaire. This questionnaire helps to identify when families may need support and advice in order to help children meet their full potential as they enter education. A school nurse will review the questionnaire and may be in contact with you."

The questionnaire can be completed online by all parents/carers with a child due to attend a Warwickshire school for the first time in September. It is now open for completion until August.

Further information about the questionnaire and how to complete it can be found here: https://www.compass-uk.org/sr-hq
