Preparing Your Child For Starting School



Due to the current situation starting school will be different this year. Please visit your child's Evidence Me account and the Website for information and links through the Summer. We will share any updates and provide videos during July for them to watch. We suggest you share the videos together. Talk about where they will go and what they will do. 


Plan a day to practise your morning routine for school. This will help you to allow enough time on your first day but also give your child time to practise things like getting dressed into their school clothes.


Will you have breakfast and then get dressed (so there are no spills on their clothes?)

How will you get to school? Will you walk, go in the car, on the bus, or perhaps your child will be in childcare so they will be dropped off by their breakfast club, childminder or nursery?

Can you arrange to travel to school and walk past the school building to talk to your child about the school?


Below are some ideas for supporting the transition to school.  We hope you have a lovely summer and we look forward to working to seeing you and your child in September.
