Dental Hygiene

It's really important to take good care of your child's teeth.  The community oral health team have shared the attached documents (see below) to support parents with helping their children make healthy snack choices as well as establishing good tooth-brushing practices and routines.

 

Luton and Beds Community Eye Service

The Children’s Community Eye Service is provided by ophthalmologists, optometrists, and orthoptists who specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions by medical and surgical means.

Orthoptists use non-surgical methods to diagnose and treat abnormalities of vision and co-ordination of eye movements in people of all ages.

Our school vision screening has now resumed in reception classes in Bedfordshire and Luton.  If you have any concerns over the sight of one of your pupils, get in touch with us today to talk about a referral.  We can be contacted via:
