Moving on to Primary School

Children in Scotland usually start Primary School when they are between 4½ and 5½ years old.  This can be an exciting time for children and their families.  It can often be overwhelming too.  There are lots of things you can do to help your child with moving on to Primary School.  On this page, you will find lots of ideas and activities you can use.  Starting to think about what your child will need to do when they start primary school will help you too. Make sure you spend time playing with your child to help them develop the skills they need.
