Starting School

Fortunately, starting school today is a pleasurable experience for the vast majority of children. The beginning stage of your child's education is an appropriate time to promote awareness of the very important effect that parental support, aspirations and attitudes have on children's achievements.

You can help your child develop a really positive and confident approach to school in a variety of ways.

  • Encourage your child to be as independent as possible; encourage him/her to dress themselves and manage their own shoes; encourage him/her to use the toilet independently and manage there alone.
  • See that your child goes to bed regularly at a reasonable hour - between 6.30 - 8 pm is recommended; tired children do not learn effectively.
  • Ensure that when reading books are sent home you set aside a few minutes to read quietly with your child.
  • Encourage your child to have a really positive attitude to school.  Your confidence in what the school is trying to do for your child and comments that you make about the school in your child's hearing will have a powerful effect on your child's attitude.
  • Talk to your child and be involved with them.  Talking is a valuable learning experience and your child will be able to communicate more effectively if you talk with them.
  • We provide opportunities for parents of new children to learn more about the school's approach to the teaching of reading and mathematics and to see some of the material that we use during the first year at school.  Do please try to attend these events so that we may work in partnership with you and that you develop an awareness of the valuable things you can do at home.
  • Please make sure your child has a good breakfast before coming to school.  They need energy to learn effectively.
