Every child joining the programme must have written consent given by their parent or guardian.
The consent form asks questions about past medical history and we particularly want to know if your child has ever had to be hospitalised following a severe asthma attack or has an allergy to colophony or sticking plaster.
It may not be appropriate for some children to have the varnish applied. We will keep you informed before visiting school if this is the case.
If a child has a sore mouth or broken skin around the mouth or an infectious illness on the day of the dental team’s visit, then fluoride varnish will not be applied. We would let you know about this in writing.
