We asked some of our children that have recently started the school what we could do to try and make sure that a new child has a 'perfect first day'.
This is what we do to try and help new children settle in.
Adults and children are friendly to children all the time.
Have a Buddy to look after a new child and to show them around the school and look after them.
Play with new friends at break time.
Make sure that they do not sit by themselves at lunchtime.
Explain what to do, where to go and how to behave.
Help them feel comfortable and answer any questions.
