Getting Ready for School


Starting school can be a daunting time for many children and parents. Often children are used to having an adult to help them with simple tasks e.g. putting on shoes, fastening their coat, finding their bag. When children start school there are less adults available, and we encourage children to develop independence. The documents below will give you some guidance on activities and skills to practise before your child starts school to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

The following websites have activities and information all about starting school.
