Links to Support your Child's Transition into School



We know that children learn best through their own experiences and having fun. We really want them to have a fantastic school holiday, full of rich experiences. We also want to support you in preparing your child for school by developing their understanding and independence. We have created a list of links to support your child's independence and personal skills. 


Promoting Independence

Your child will really benefit from being as independent as possible when they start school. Teaching staff will always be on hand to support but children feel a real sense of achievement when they accomplish things by themselves.
