The healthcare service is connected to individual schools in Esbjerg Municipality. Here, the health visitor offers examinations and conversations to all children from grades 0 to 9. The health visitor participates in health promotion activities at the school and collaborates with the students' parents and school staff in interdisciplinary work.
In 0th grade, your child and you as parents are invited to an individual health conversation, during which we also offer to examine vision, hearing, height, and weight.
When the children attend pre-school during the SMART school start period, we assess their motor skills in collaboration with the teacher.
The Danish Health Authority recommends that children are measured and weighed again during 1st grade.
Of course, we will contact you as parents for consent before your child is measured and weighed.
In 6th grade, your child is invited to a health conversation and offered examinations of height, weight, and vision.
Of course, we will contact you as parents for consent before measuring, weighing, and testing your child.
In 8th grade, your child is invited to a health conversation, during which we also offer examinations of vision, hearing, height, and weight.
Of course, we will contact you as parents for consent before examining your child.
At the other grade levels, the health visitor can offer various health education activities at the class level or in groups. The topics vary and may include hand hygiene, menstruation, puberty, mental well-being, and more.
The health visitor is always available if you or your child would like an individual conversation or an examination of height, weight, vision, and/or hearing. You can make an appointment by contacting the health visitor. Find contact information here on the website, on AULA, or look for our poster at the school.
