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
