If you accept your place at Hertford you will hopefully be able to visit and meet the staff and see the enviroment before your child starts. Children will normally be invited to some settling in sessions in June and July too.

Here are some ideas of the things you can practise at home before starting in Reception. These will all help your child prepare for starting school. The BBC also has a whole range of videos and articles on ways to support your child as they start school.

Reception Baseline Assessment Our focus at the beginning of the year will be getting to know your child, helping them to feel settled and helping them to build new friendships. Alongside this, we will be required by the government to carry out a baseline assessment of each child.

This video, which is produced by the Department for Education (DfE) explains their baseline assessment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFtcBdknyCI
