Almost 5 year old wetting himself daily

So, my son will be 5 this month, he started reception a month ago and has started to wee himself daily, sometimes even twice a day. We constantly remind him to go to the toilet at home and I'm hoping the teachers do too at school as I told them about him piddling himself. I don't know what to do, I've cut down his drinks, I leave a good gap between each drink. What should I do? Is this normal behaviour?

Is he wetting both at home and at school? Has he got a fever at all? Could it be a urine infection?

If it’s just at school, is he unsure about asking to go to the toilet?

It's at school and occasionally at home. Over the weekend he also done it twice. Really it depends what he's doing, whether he's occupied and doing something that interests him. It's like he no longer feels his bladder full.
I've spoken to the school and the teacher said she is reminding him to go all the time. Today is the first day in about 2 weeks he hasn't wet himself! Praised him like mad!

I’m so happy to see this post - I’m sorry, that’s not because I’m glad your DS is struggling, but because mine is too and I’m so lost as to how to help or why this is happening.
He’s just 4 in June and started Reception in September. He’s peeing himself once, sometimes twice a day. At the start he had dry days, now they’re less and less frequent.
The school have commented and don’t seem happy at all. We’ve tried everything. He’s not so bad at home but has also started bedwetting, something he has never really done.

So sorry I don’t have much advice - but it’s good to know I’m not alone.
