Getting ready to start school


Starting school can be very exciting but we understand that some children (and adults) feel nervous about the change. There are many ways that you can support your child to be as ready as they can be to start school. The poster below is full of ideas of what 'ready for school' may mean for you and your child. The summer holidays are a perfect time to practise independence skills such as toileting, hand washing and getting dressed. We will give you more information at our Parents and Carers Meeting.
