What to Expect in your First Weeks

Preparing your child for school can feel quite daunting. To support you, we have put together a few leaflets to help you with this and to give you some ideas of the ways in which you can prepare your child for their next adventure in big school.

You can download this guide to helping your child become ‘Reception Ready’

We’ve also prepared some information to help your child feel welcome and at ease as they join their new class.

In addition to this, we’ve made a short film for you and your child that shows them the setting and some of the fun activities that they can do while at school. It also helps you to answer some of those functional questions such as ‘where do I go to the toilet?’ or ‘what happens at lunch time?’. So please, if you can, take a few minutes to sit down and watch this short film together.
