Supporting children in moving on

Question Title

* 1. We provide a picture booklet about moving to school with the following information in it: staff, the building and the different rooms, where to line up, toilets, uniform, PE kit, water bottles, school lunches, house groups, and assemblies. Is there anything else you would like in the booklet?

Question Title

* 2. We arrange for your child's teacher to come and meet them in nursery. Do you think this is valuable?

Question Title

* 3. We arrange visits to the Primary 1 class spread out over a number of weeks.  Each school sets their own dates and times for this.  How many visits do you think would be reasonable for your child?

Question Title

* 4. At Gatehouse we use a Buddy System, where we match an older pupil to your child.  Their Buddy comes to nursery to play with them and will take them out into the playground over a few weeks during morning and/or lunch break. The Buddy helps to support them during their first term at 'big school'.  Are you happy for your child to receive this support?
