Child starting school in September

Anyone else have a child starting full time school in September? Just looking to speak with others in the same boat as me as (for me) this is going to be the biggest knock on affect on the Coronavirus.
Really am heartbroken for my little one who will probably not return to nursery and have to go straight into school ☹️

Yes us, our daughter turns 4 in July and this was my first worry. Husband and I are both key workers who can not work from home so she will still be going to nursery her usual two mornings a week.
I’m hoping we still hear about school placements in April.

Yes I also worried about the school places. But thought those people might hopefully work from home? 🤞🏼

My eldest starts school in September. I'm not worried. It's a bit different here (Ireland). She's 5 in August (too young to start last September, she missed cut off). This is her second year in Montessori . She's ready now for school

How old is your daughter? Remember all the kids will be in the same situation

We are sad about this

Our Arabella won’t get to go to pre school again and have the leaving stuff or the intake day’s at school, they usually do a teddy bears picnic etc

Yes I’m also in the same boat. Due to work my daughter attends a private nursery not school nursery. She is now going to miss her settling/ meet the teacher days which she really needs. I just hope she is ok come 1st day of school.

Reception teachers will be ready and prepared for an influx of children who’s entire lives were turned upside down. They’ll help them adjust and adapt.

It’s unfair they won’t have had the same settling in chances and build up other years groups had. It’s obviously difficult for all children for a variety of reasons but the younger they are the less they’ll understand. However, don’t forget they don’t know they’ve missed out on settling in sessions etc so really, they’re non the wiser that their build up was different to that of others and not the norm.

I teach reception and know that my intake list was sorted by the head and chair of governors two weeks ago so hopefully council workers can work remotely to finalise lusts for publication.

If this comes later than normal it may just take longer than usual to finalise appeals. If your child misses the remaining nursery year they will start in reception at their level and teachers would be mindful of the upheavel they have been through.

My son is a september baby so one of the oldest and I know he’ll be fine as they’ll all be in the same boat. I just feel really sad for all the lovely experiences he’s going to miss out on
