NHS Food Swaps Campaign
for healthier eating
Scan, Swipe and Swap your way to better health!
At Christ Church Primary School we encourage children to have healthier habits. One way to encourage this is by using the ultimate healthy hack, the free Food Scanner app from Better Health.
Our children learn what a balanced diet looks like and why it is important to know what is in our food and drink. Therefore they can make simple, healthier eating swaps using the free Food Scanner app.
By simply scanning and swiping barcodes, the app shows how much saturated fat, salt and sugar is in everyday foods and drinks and gives suggestions for healthier alternatives. A fun augmented reality feature helps you celebrate your good choices.

Dear Parent / Carer (Christchurch Primary School)
School based Vision and Hearing Screening Catch- Up Programme
Vison and Hearing Screening is usually offered to children at age 4 – 5. Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic we were not able to offer Hearing and Vision screening in 2020/21, when your child would have been offered to be screened. We are now able to offer a catch- up programme for the children currently in Year 1. We are working in partnership with your child’s school. Vision and Hearing screening is very important, especially for learning and development. Vision and Hearing screening is part of the Healthy Child Programme offered by the School Nursing Service in Brent.
We aim to avoid further delay, as it is it important that your child receives Vision and Hearing screening as soon as possible. Your child’s school will confirm the specific dates of the screening sessions for your child.
is under professional care / wears glasses/ attends an eye clinic/ optician or wears hearing aids/ attends an audiology clinic,
All health-related information is kept confidential however, in some instances this may be shared on a need-to-know basis with other services including the school, to enable better support for your child in school. The School Nurse will contact you to discuss the need to share other health-related information where relevant.
Should you have any questions about the Hearing and Vision screening please contact us via the email address above and we will endeavour to respond to you within 48 hours.
