We understand that these are difficult and uncertain times and we will keep you updated with all new information about what your child will need when they start school. We  will soon contact you about dates for induction visits and  interviews over the phone focusing on  information regarding each and every child and family needs. Rest assured that we will support you as best we can.

 Checklist to Promote Your Child's Independence


Promote independence by:


Putting on clothes independently

Going to the toilet without support

Wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds

Tidy things away in the correct place, e.g. hanging up coats, put objects in bags

Use a knife and fork

Use a tissue


Continue the learning journey:


Help your child to recognise their name

Teach your child to hold a pencil correctly using  ‘pinching’ fingers

Teach your child to write their name using a capital letter for the first letter only

Practise counting out loud, counting objects, looking at numerals and identifying them

Sit and read a story every day with your child talking about the characters and events, naming objects, relating to own experiences

Talking to your child about their day’s activities, giving simple instructions, singing nursery rhymes (Speech and Language is a growing concern amongst young children and providing the support for them in this way is very beneficial)

Use scissors
