Moving on to School

Playbox Plus transition into school group. Children going school the next academic year are given the opportunity to be involved in activities that are designed to ready them for school. Curriculum's, books and activities include preparation materials to support the children in their transition. Playbox has adopted the same behaviour management scheme, and some learning techniques of the local schools to ensure some continuity.

A meeting will be held at local schools between one of Playbox leaders and the schools reception teachers at least once each term to discuss learning and teaching issues and techniques, there will also be a meeting at the end of the academic year to discuss children’s social and emotional development and any support that may be needed in the first few weeks of statutory schooling.
