EU Exit Preparations

Please ensure that you and your staff are familiar with the DfE guidance available online at
Lord Agnew (Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System) issued a letter to Directors of Children’s Services requesting that it is shared with state schools. Read the ‘Guidance for schools on leaving the EU’ letter online.

School Ready Leaflets


We recently asked you to help us test two ‘school ready’ leaflets; one for families of pre-school children and one for professionals such as teachers, Early Years provision staff and health visitors.  

These leaflets were both developed in consultation with a multi agency working group which is looking at improving early outcomes for young children in Gloucestershire by helping them to get ready for school.

Thank you very much for all your feedback.  The leaflets have been reviewed and amended in the light of the comments received and you can see the revised versions at https://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/school-readiness  We are in the process of developing further content for our webpage to provide some useful information and resources that can help children to get ready for school.  The leaflets will be available to download from this webpage. A printed copy of the families leaflet will shortly be sent out to families with a child due to start school in September.
