VCAMS children entering school with basic skills for life and learning

The Student Entrant Health Questionnaire (SEHQ) is a parent report instrument that records parent's concerns and observations about their child's health and wellbeing. It is also a tool for clinical practice and a point of engagement with parents and educators. The parents of all children beginning primary school in Victoria are asked to complete the SEHQ.

The questionnaire is designed to assist School Nurses by providing detailed information on parental concerns about children’s health in areas including general health, speech, hearing, vision, development, behaviour, well-being and family stress. In addition, data from the SEHQ provides the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development with valuable information to advise government and service providers on how well our children are faring at the point of school entry.
