Around 165,000 pupils in England’s special schools will receive free NHS eye testing in their school setting from next year, the government has confirmed. The government’s NHS Long Term Plan had already committed to provide eye testing to children in residential special schools. But this will now be extended to all special schools from 2024 to 2025, backed by £10m in funding.
