Starting school post covid

For children due to start school in September 2020, it hasn’t been the regular introduction to school that many children enjoy. Traditional settling in sessions haven’t been possible, so early years teams within our schools have been more creative with helping children to get ready for school. This has included e-books for parents with advice on helping children get ready to start school, e-books for children with pictures of their teaching teams, videos to show new starters around school and Zoom games and activities. Lucy James, Reception class teacher from Clutton Primary School spoke to The School Run about starting school in a pandemic.
