Starting school is a big step for your child and for you too. Schools work hard to help children settle in both before and once they start, but there’s plenty you can do at home to help your child feel well prepared and confident.
As you’ll know, your child is very influenced by what you do and say. If
your child hears positive things from you about school, they will be more
positive; if they see you engaged and having fun at their school, that
makes a big difference too.
"The effect of parental engagement over a student’s
school career is the equivalent of adding an extra two to
three years to a student’s education." John Hattie, Visible Learning 2008
