10 keys to unlocking school readiness


The 10 keys have been identified by Derbyshire parents, carers and professionals.

These help you to understand what children, developing typically for their age, should be able to do by the time they start in reception class.


The 10 keys for unlocking school readiness are:


  • I can settle happily without my parent or carer
  • I can tell friends and grown-ups what I need
  • I can take turns and share when I am playing
  • I can go to the toilet on my own and wash my hands
  • I can put on my own coat and shoes and feed myself
  • I can tell a grown up if I am happy, sad or cross
  • I know that what I do and say can make others happy or unhappy
  • I am curious and want to learn and play
  • I can stop what I am doing, listen and follow simple instructions
  • I enjoy sharing books with grown-ups
