October is ADHD Awareness Month. To think of ADHD only as poor concentration, impulsiveness or hyperactivity is to trivialise what can be a very debilitating difference in Neuro cognitive capacity. Identified early, treated & educated how to manage it can transform & ‘enable’☂️ https://t.co/t7lqsNJcG0

If you do not complete the admissions paperwork and attend your child's induction meeting you will delay your child's start date.

Getting Your Child Ready for School


We know that as parents/carers you can give your child a great deal of help at home. Here are some suggestions of ways to support your child’s learning at home.

  • Talk to your child and listen and respond to their answers. Encourage waiting to talk and taking turns to respond. Use family meal times as an opportunity to discuss and share experiences.
  • Encourage playing with other children, turn taking and sharing toys.
  • Show your child how to put his/her coat on. Let them practise dressing up for imaginary play.
  • Encourage quiet times and active times.
  • Encourage tidy up times after a toy has been used.
  • Read stories to your child to foster a love of books and to show how to take care of books.
  • Join the local library and encourage your child to choose books to borrow.
  • Sing rhymes and songs with your child – so much about speech and language can be learnt from nursery rhymes.
  • Provide lots of writing equipment. Draw your child’s attention to signs – shop names, street names, posters etc. Encourage drawing, colouring and tracing.
  • Help with simple mathematical skills – counting and matching using everyday objects.
  • Use bath time creatively e.g. bubbles, pouring, tea sets, sponges.
  • Play games e.g. Kim’s game, snakes and ladders, I spy.
