Starting School

At Boorley Park Primary School we aim to ensure that starting school is a positive and fun experience for your child. We also understand that it can be an anxious period for yourselves, and that there is a great deal of information and routine to adjust to.

To help introduce new children and parents to the school we have produced some resources which we hope you will find useful.
