Starting school can be both exciting and challenging for children and their parents.

Children move to a new environment where they will spend a considerable amount of time needing to master:

  • getting around their new environment
  • making new friends
  • learning in a more structured classroom environment
  • perhaps wearing a uniform
  • getting on with a wider range of peers

Novita supports children and their families to make the start of school as smooth as possible through early planning. It is important to concentrate on helping the school to get to know your child so that they can meet your child’s needs.

When children attend school there is usually an increased focus on Novita supports being provided to help your child get the best out of their time at school. Novita staff can work in partnership with teachers to help your child participation in the school curriculum where this is required. Novita staff can work alongside teachers in classroom settings to support your child’s inclusion.
