Then Come The Vaguely Threatening Letters...

Re: the School Entry Wellbeing Report.

Already the reminder letters are being sent out to parents in Lincolnshire:
Dear parent/carer/guardian

A short while ago we wrote to you about the school nursing service and enclosed a health and wellbeing questionnaire.

This questionnaire has not been completed and returned school. Please complete and return this within the next 7 days so that an assessment can be made about the health and well-being of your child.

If you have any concerns or issues you wish to discuss, please contact a member of the school health team on the above number.
Nothing about it being voluntary.

No information about this whole thing has been made available to parents. There are just vague statements about making "assessments".

How is the information going to collated? Is it on a database? How is the information organised? Who does the collating? What criteria are being used to make these assessments? Who decides to act upon an assessment? What happens when action is to take place? Do parents have any say in it? How long is the information going to be retained? Who gets to see it? Will all or parts of it be made available to other government departments (Social Services, Inland Revenue, etc?)

Bin it and complain, because they are going to harass you with reminders.
