Parent Booklet – Return to School

Good morning Hillside! Only a few days left until we are all together again – I’m sure many of you are feeling both excited and nervous but be reassured that we cannot wait to see you all! The Educational Psychologist Team have created a really useful booklet to help prepare children for their return to school (the first ten pages are especially useful for all children and have some top tips for those with additional needs too) and we thought we would share it with you to help you support and prepare your children for their return. Please talk to them about the changes to their home/school routine, remind them of their new classes and teachers (using the powerpoints we sent before the end of summer) and discuss their feelings, excitement and apprehension as necessary! Please remind your children that team work makes the dream work, that they all have brilliant growth mindsets and let them know that we can’t wait to be back in the classroom, learning and growing together! See you all soon! 🌟
