Do you want children to have a positive start to school life?


Why not have a look at BBC Bitesize: Starting Primary School which is packed full of advice and guidance around applying for school, preparing to start school and supporting your child during the early days of school life.


Starting Primary School from BBC Bitesize also provides support in key areas such as toilet training, a good sleep routine and emotional and social skills such as making friends and taking turns.  There is a fun interactive game which allows the children to experience their first day at school and there are also several short films where they can hear from other primary school children about why they love school.
