What impact will this policy have on primary school new entrant cohorts? Will it mean more cost, retraining and resourcing for primary schools?
No, children will still be able to attend school from five years old. Schools will be encouraged to employ more ECE-trained staff in these earlier years. Some primary teachers may seek deeper understandings of social/emotional learning as part of their usual professional development budget.
