St John Rigby Catholic Primary School

Being ready for school involves more than the child. Families and school need to work together to support the child to be ready for the transition to school.

The United Nations World Fit for Children (WFFC) reinforces the importance of “A good start in life, in a nurturing and safe environment that enables children to survive and be physically healthy, mentally alert, emotionally secure, socially competent and able to learn”.

At St John Rigby, providing your child with the best start in life is at the heart of what we want to achieve.

We have adopted Bedford Borough's 'Ready Family, Ready Child' approach, which encompasses the Unicef model for readiness for school, to help achieve this ambition. Please access their videos and documents below, which focus on the key areas of:
