First Day

Getting Prepared for Your First Day

Starting school is exciting!

Remember to be positive, reassuring, confident, supportive, cheerful and enthusiastic about it.

A month or so before the date that your child is due to begin school, we will contact you to arrange a date for two pre-entry visits for you and your child. During these visits your child will join in with part of the day's programme. For the first visit you are welcome to stay in the classroom – this will help your child to feel settled and secure. For the second visit we recommend that you allow your child time alone in the classroom. Children may visit in their school uniforms or mufti clothing.
