Survey highlights that children starting primary school are not ready to start school
Concerned are being raised by head teachers regarding the amount of children starting school who are unable to use the toilet or speak in full sentences.
It has been urged by the NDNA that settings such as school and early years settings should work more closely together. Creating a solid transition period will help all professionals involved, teachers will be able to understand children’s starting points, early years staff can share any concerns and it also allows measures to be put in place regarding extra support.
It is imperative that from the start children are given high-quality care and education and information is shared with schools regarding children’s development.
