My Starting School Sticker Challenge

Going to school is a big step for young children. Help your child feel school-ready by completing our exciting sticker challenge in the weeks before they start.

Print out the poster, pop it on your wall, grab some little star stickers and see how many your child can get. They will love filling it in!

Helping Children to Be School Ready: Tips for Parents

Starting pre-prep or nursery is a significant and exciting transition in a child’s life. We can help them to prepare over the summer by supporting them as they learn new skills and by noticing and praising them when they show good social skills. Use these tips over the summer holidays before your child starts school (or earlier) to help them feel prepared and excited for their next adventure.

Understanding Degree Apprenticeships

In this webinar, Dr Weston is joined by Susan Smith from All Things Careers to learn more about degree apprenticeships. What are they? Who are they aimed at?

One for all parents, teachers and 6th form pupils to watch as you start to plan the next few years.
