Barnados (Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust's Hampshire Healthy Families partner) are running a School Readiness Digital Workshop to help parents prepare for and adjust to school life.
Each one-off session lasts for 1½ hours and will be live and interactive. The session will explore and discover what it really means to be school ready and hopes to address the many questions, feelings and emotions that families may have regarding their child about to start school.
There are a number of sessions being held between now and early July, on different days and times. The sessions are free and are open to any parent or carer of children registered with a Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust Health Visiting Team , but parents wishing to attend do need to book tickets via Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/school-readiness-digital-workshop-on-14-may-2021-hampshire-hw-tickets-149675602757

Welcome to Shakespeare Infant School.
My name is Mrs Nikki Wilson and I am the Head Teacher.
Our school ethos is We Care and that’s a huge part of what we do here.
We are a three form entry Infant school with big aspirations for the children who come here. We are guided by our 6 learning values of:
I want the children who come here to leave as happy, confident individuals who continue to show they care about themselves, others and the community around them, children who are brave enough to continue to be themselves and who are willing to try new things even if it’s a bit scary.
I’m proud to be the HT of such a caring school. The children and staff here are so kind, caring and inclusive of each other and it’s a shame you haven’t had the opportunity to feel and see this on a walk around our lovely school.
I also think our caring ways go even deeper – in the way the staff treat the children and the way the staff treat the parents. We know that being a parent is one of the hardest jobs to do and we want to support you on that journey and in any way that we can.
Finally, our Eastleigh community is very important to us. Being in the Boyatt Wood area that we are, it’s not only a responsibility but an opportunity to reach out to the local community and be a part of it wherever we can. Our care ethos also fosters a very strong sense of community within our school, none so more than the unprecedented times we find ourselves in today.
We offer a broad and rich integrated curriculum including the arts, science and sports and as a staff we try to be flexible in our approach and go with the children’s interests and motivations as well.
