Starting Primary School Information & Support


Starting School can be an exciting time for parents and children, however it can be a daunting time too. With a little preparation & encouragement most children will settle into school life with ease.

Your child doesn’t need to be able to read or write before they start school. Children start school with a wide range of abilities and their teacher will be skilled at helping children progress at their own level.

Your child will continue to learn using the Curriculum for Excellence and the subject areas will be the same, however they will be taught at a different level.
