Starting school is an exciting time: a time of new experiences, new friends and new places. Our Reception school days provide a safe and secure environment where your child can play, explore, experiment, investigate and learn. We also encourage the children to acquire skills and knowledge through first-hand experiences, gaining a sound understanding of the world around them.

The curriculum for our Reception classes has been developed from children's particular interests as well as carefully planned topics which enable your child to access all parts of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Educational trips and visits are also carefully planned which really bring our topics to life. Information on each topic can be found in the long term plans on the school website. Should you have any further questions please feel free to ask your child's class teacher or another member of the school teaching staff.
