Things your child should bring on their first day
We understand that the first day at school, or at a new school, can be daunting for both you and your child. To help things go as smoothly as possible, and to avoid any last-minute panics over pencil cases and rain boots, we've collated a checklist of everything your child needs to bring on their first day...and beyond. We've also included some other useful information to help with the transition.
