A very warm welcome to Reception. We have two classes, Rabbits and Squirrels, with an intake of up to 60 children. Some children come directly from our Pre-School and some from other settings – all will be valued and nurtured, and we will help them settle in quickly and make friends.
In our last Ofsted inspection, the Early Years provision was praised by parents for our “caring and inclusive ethos” and this runs throughout the school.
We follow the EYFS curriculum which includes seven key areas of learning – Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Maths, Literacy, Expressive Art and Design and Understanding the World. Children learn through play and we adapt learning to their interests wherever possible. We are fortunate to have a large outside area, dedicated solely to Reception, which the children have access to throughout the day.
Our classes are vibrant and exciting environments in which to learn and our children are happy and enthusiastic. We aim to lay the foundations for them to develop into caring, confident and independent learners as they progress throughout the school.
