Welcome back to Forest Moor School, where the new school year is just around the corner! We can’t wait to reunite with our wonderful students and families. While we are bursting with excitement to kick off another year of learning and growth, we understand that returning to school after a relaxing summer break can be a bit nerve-wracking for some.
At FMS, we’re here to support both students and parents in navigating these feelings of anxiety. To ensure a seamless transition back to school, we’ve compiled a list of helpful resources and tips, generously provided by North Yorkshire Early Help. We encourage you to explore these resources before the first official day, Thursday 7th September, and reach out to our dedicated staff if you have any concerns or questions.
1. Understanding Back-to-School Anxiety: Returning to school after a long break can trigger anxiety in students. It’s essential to recognize these feelings as normal and valid. Read more about understanding and managing back-to-school anxiety [here].
2. Creating a Calming Morning Routine: Establishing a predictable morning routine can alleviate stress and set a positive tone for the day. Check out how we create calming morning routine [here].
3. Open Lines of Communication: We value open and honest communication. If you or your child have any concerns or barriers to returning to school, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Contact our class lead via our school number or email, and we’ll be happy to assist you.
4. Virtual or In-Person: Your Choice: Whether you’re joining us in person or virtually, we’re ready to provide the best educational experience possible. Choose the option that suits your family best, and we’ll be here to support your decision.
We eagerly anticipate tomorrow’s Parent Review Day and the official start of the school year on Thursday. It’s a new beginning filled with exciting opportunities for growth, learning, and connection. If you have any questions or need additional support, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We’re here for you every step of the way.
