STARTING TO TALK ABOUT SCHOOL

It's never too early to start helping your child prepare for school.

The year before your child starts school will go round so quickly, you will be buying new school uniform before you know it!

To help you prepare your child for school throughout the year we will add leaflets for you about the activities you could do to support. 

When it is safe and COVID 19 restrictions have been lifted, try walking your child past the school gates when children are going to and from school. Begin to talk about school and the children in a positive way as you pass. There are lots of stories you can read about school and we have included them in our first leaflet called 'Preparing for School' attached below.
