London Mums back to school newsletter

Dear London Mums,

School could not come soon enough but at the same time going back to school can be a tricky process for young children and parents. Admittedly my son and I ticked all boxes in a research from Explore Learning that has found what parents say their kids most worry about when returning to school. It’s no surprise that kids dread going back to school, 56% say kids struggle to get back into the school routine, 50% say early mornings are the hardest, 50% of parents in the UK pointed to the early morning starts and a third of kids struggle to cope with the reintroduction of homework.

For me in particular this new school year means a lot as it is Diego’s last in primary school and is the dawn of secondary school, whose prospect and process scares me a bit too. This is why I have gathered a few experts to guide me in this journey and this newsletter is filled with great advice on schooling (across all schools and nurseries). I hope you find it as useful as I have.
