    Oxfordshire Early Years team adopts UNICEF’s description of the three elements of school readiness:

    • Children’s readiness for school
    • Families and communities’ readiness for school
    • Settings’ and schools’ readiness for children.

    ​The Early Years team have developed a comprehensive toolkit of resources to support busy leaders and practitioners in early years settings and schools. The toolkit can be accessed via our dedicated website on an annual subscription basis.
