Starting primary school is a big event in every child’s life, in every parent’s life, too. It’s a big change that’s exciting and a bit scary. Even if your child went to the school nursery or has other friends starting they might still be a bit nervous, and most children haven’t had the chance to prepare for moving up to primary school.
This is a big day for everyone, but don’t worry their new teachers will understand that things have been different, and they’ll be focussed on helping your child settle. There are things you can do to get them ready so they have a happy first day.
