Getting Ready for School Checklist: In Reception, we encourage independence skills as part of our curriculum. This checklist provides some ideas of what skills we would like our children to have mastered when starting school. It is not a comprehensive or mandatory list but it may be a useful starting point for getting your child ready for Reception. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you need any more information or help with any of these skills.
