Many children find it difficult to get back into the school routine after a long break, like the summer holidays. The extended time out of school may make it difficult for children to return and we have collated strategies written by our staff to support you with helping your child get ready to go back into school.

You may also find the resources in our emotional wellbeing and behaviour sections helpful to support your child back into school.
