Welcome to the Reception classes!

Our first aim when your child begins their first year of school is to establish a strong partnership with parents to ensure a successful settling in period. We create a calm, happy, purposeful environment, in which each child will feel safe, secure, happy and have fun. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces in our learning environment encourage each child to explore, investigate and learn through first-hand experiences across all 7 areas of learning.

Children learn through play with a combination of adult led and self initiated activities where the adult will observe, assess and extend their learning. The activities are planned in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework with clear learning objectives and offer a range of opportunities to motivate and inspire all children.

We value each child as unique, and encourage them to develop at their own pace and become independent learners.
