School Transitions

Helping your child transition into their Primary/Infant school this year will be different and possibly difficult for many families this year.  They may have missed many weeks at nursery and, usually during this last half term, we would start to prepare your child for their onward journey.  To help with this transition our Family Workers, Amanda and Lois, are on hand to help and offer support as always.  There is also lots of useful information on the Flying Start Website so please do take some time to have a look through at the tips and advice given, along with the video clips;

We are also currently in the process of contacting schools and if possible, will be asking them to provide us with photos and small video clips introducing the staff and the school to your child.  You will then be able to view this information with your child on our Class Dojo App, so please keep checking regularly for updates.

If you have specific concerns regarding your child starting school and would like to speak to your School direct, then please do contact the Family Worker or Early Years Lead at your child’s Primary/Infant school as I am sure they will be pleased to help.  We will also be in close contact with all schools to share information and hold transition meetings where necessary.

If you have specific queries with regard to your child’s allocated School place then please contact the Admissions Team at Luton Borough Council:
