Welcome to this parent’s area, I am so pleased that you have taken the time to explore and find out more about The Lancaster Model (TLM). 

My name is Kath Lancaster and I developed this model to improve outcomes for your children, young people and family using earlier identification of potential problems and issues.

Every child and young person has the right to express their thoughts, opinions, have access to all kinds of information and the right to the best possible health (The United Convention on the rights of the child, Article 13/24 2021).

By completing an age appropriate, proven questionnaire through The Lancaster Model (TLM) Portal, you, your child or young person will have the opportunity to have a full assessment of health needs, register any worries and concerns and ask for help, support and information if needed. This process will also provide immediate access to school health professionals, who will be able to advise, signpost or support you if required.


Best Wishes
Kath Lancaster

Four Key Benefits for Parents/Guardians:

1: Ensure your Child or Young Person has a Full Assessment of their Health Needs, Safely, Securely and Easily

3: Ensure your Child or Young Person has a Voice and can Express their Concerns and Worries and get Age Appropriate Information

How does it work?

Each web-based questionnaire will take about 20 minutes to complete and consists of research-based questions which together, assess and highlight health-related needs.

This process will be carried out by yourself (at school entry), by your child (in Year 6, with supervison and support) and by your young person (in Year 9 and after they have had their 16th birthday).

What type of questions are asked?

Questions are asked about various important health-related topics, including Medical Problems, Emotional Health and Wellbeing, Lifestyle Choices and Lifestyle Behaviour.

  • Does your child have a long-standing illness?
  • Would you like help and support about child development?
  • How often does your child drink plain water?
  • In the past year have you been to the accident and emergency department following an accident or injury?
  • In the last year have you had a check-up at the dentist?
  • Have you ever been bullied?
  • Have you any worries and concerns about your diet?
  • In the past year have you been to the accident and emergency department following an accident or injury?
  • Would you like more information about emotional health?
  • How many people in your class do you think drink alcohol more than once a week?

Who sees the information and is it stored securely?

All identifiable information collected via the questionnaire will be seen first by the School health team and then shared appropriately with other professionals in the same way as any other health-related information.

We fully appreciate that you may want to know more about the information/data that is collected, and how it’s stored, and that it’s all safe. Aire Logic Ltd/The Lancaster Model complies with the recommendations for Data Security and Privacy that is required under current laws and legislation including GDPR, which was introduced across the EU and UK in May 2018.

Being transparent is also really important, so here is Aire Logic LTD/The Lancaster Model’s Information Governance Policy and we can be contacted also at admin@tlmhapi.co.uk if you do have any further questions.

Around 1.25 people in the UK suffer from an eating disorder, many in secret. BEAT Eating Disorders is a charity that offers a national helpline 365 days a year as well as lots of online support and information.

Children and young people spend time online practically every day and it can be hard to keep track of your child’s activity on social media and apps. The NSPPC in conjunction with O2 have a campaign called Share Aware that offers practical advice and tips to help you.
