These resources are only available to schools and settings once they have undertaken Everyone Ready for School training. If you are not participating in the programme but are interested in doing so in the future, contact the Early Years team.

This page contains all the resources you will need to run your Everyone Ready for School programme. The resources complement the materials received at your training day.

Please note that these resources will continue to be developed, adapted and added to, so it is important that you check them regularly.

Best practice examples will be shared as they are developed. If you feel others could benefit from examples of what you have been doing in your setting, please contact

Below is a brief description of each resource.

Staff training

  • Staff training presentation: the PowerPoint presentation used in the staff training

Case study template
