Important information regarding vision checks for pupils in Reception Classes:

Vision Screens are no longer taking place in Reception and have not taken place for pupils now in Year1.  The advice now is to take your child for regular eye checks (available free on the NHS) at a local optician just as you would attend regular dental check ups for your oral health.  Please see the letter from Dean Wallace, Director of Public Health at Derbyshire County Council which explains the changes.
