Coming this August

A child’s transition into education is an exciting time for the whole family. You and your child may have questions about how life is going to change. What will primary school life be like? What can you do to prepare yourself and your child for the very best start?

The Starting Primary School campaign, launches on BBC Bitesize this August. It will provide a toolkit of practical advice, support and resources for parents, guardians and children across a wide range of areas including school life, daily routine, sleep and how to support children practically and emotionally.

Starting Primary School will offer videos and articles for parents featuring information from experts and been-there-done-that tips from other parents. Your children can also explore their questions about school by playing a fun interactive game.
