Many parents are confused by all the changes that take place in schooling so this succinct guide will be very welcome. It covers all the key topics - how to choose a school; the admissions process; how to prepare your child to start school; the curriculum and SATS, among other things. The admissions process can be a minefield so it is good to see this clarified. The advice on choosing a school is excellent, particularly the questions to ask. The curriculum is complex to understand, as are the requirements of SATS and both these areas are clearly and succinctly covered. You can find out how much time your child will spend on key subjects and what they are expected to know. There is also a list of useful contacts. A very practical guide for all parents.

The publication date is misleading. This title was first published in 2010 and has not been updated for this current edition. It still talks about changes that WILL take place in 2010. Overall, the information given seems in line with what I have been told at my child's school curriculum meeting (she is in reception this year), but the fact that the text has not been updated to reflect more current chagnes is disappointing.

This book is a great guide for all parents whose children are about to start school. It guides you through the process from choosing a school to understanding the National Curriculum up to the end of Key Stage 2. The chapters are clearly defined so you can dip in and out to find the information you need, and the author has written it in a way that any educational jargon is explained clearly.
