Reception

A child’s experience in the Early Years has a major impact on their future life and learning, therefore, we want your child to enjoy coming to school. We aim to support your child’s curiosity and independence, giving them the confidence to blossom.

Following the Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, children are given a thorough grounding in phonics and reading and are taught to recognise and use numbers with a real understanding. Reception children also receive lessons from our specialist staff in art, PE, music, ICT, French, dance and cooking.

As well as addressing the academic aspects of the curriculum, we teach our children about the importance of friendship, to care for and respect each other, to value co-operation and to be tolerant of all differences. We aim to give all our children the best possible start in life and the support to reach their potential.
