Don’t worry! Children can take time to settle into school: there is a great deal for them to learn and to take on board. Children are encouraged to mix as they move through the many and varied school activities and will naturally find a friend with whom they can feel comfortable. Friendship groups tend to be fluid as they move through the school, and your child will soon have an instinct for who she/he will feel happy to play with. However, if you feel that there is a significant problem in your child forming friendships, then we would encourage you to get in touch with your child’s class teacher.
