School Health Checks are MANDATORY

School Health Checks are required for all children entering Government schools for the first time and for children in private schools when they enter Kindergarten or Pre K4 or move to Cayman at an older age. This includes children entering reception programmes too.

The check or screening includes a growth and developmental assessment, a detailed physical examination including for scoliosis, screening for hearing or vision concerns, a dental assessment, review of necessary immunizations and obtaining a student’s personal medical history.

Who Can Conduct School Health Checks?

Children attending private schools should make an appointment to see their private paediatrician (any private paediatrician).

Children attending public schools can also have the school heath checks done by a private paediatrician. However, these are also being conducted by HSA, albeit with a later start in 2021 due to Public Health efforts in Covid vaccinations. You can find the full details of when and where HSA are conducting their checks below:
