Starting school is exciting and as a time of change it can have its challenges but it doesn’t need to be scary. Every child is unique but we find that parents play a big role in students’ confidence when starting school.
Some different ways you could help your child feel confident about starting school are:
- If you (as a parent) feel nervous try not to let it show
- Tell them good things about school
- Make sure you keep our Orientation Days free in your diary so your child can start to feel comfortable about school
- Get them to try on their uniform and give lots of compliments
