What is Get, Set, School?

Nursery to Primary 1 (N2P1) is a group work programme for parents/carers whose children are making the transition to primary school. The overall aim of this programme is to create an early intervention approach which will support parents/carers to gain more confidence supporting their child during the transition process into their first year at school, enabling them to have an active role in their child's school years and strengthen the home/school partnership. To highlight the skills and responsibilities parents/carers already have and will continue to utilise throughout their child's education and their own future development, whatever they may be.
