Welcome to Reception

Welcome to Reception


In our Reception class we aim to provide the very best early experiences of school life, making it a thoroughly enjoyable and exciting year for your child in a happy and safe environment. We work towards achieving the Early Learning Goals stated within the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, through the provision of high quality learning experiences and opportunities to enable your child to achieve and reach their learning and development potential. Children in our Reception class are encouraged to become independent learners and to take some responsibility for initiating their own lines of enquiry and investigation through play.


Class information

Please could you make sure that all clothing is named, including P.E. kits and book bags. It makes it much easier for us to reunite lost clothing when it has a name in it. Our P.E. session is on a Tuesday.


Children only need to bring their book bags to school each day. They can leave their P.E. kits on their pegs and we will send them home at the end of each half term to be washed. 


Children can bring a water bottle to school each day filled with water only. Please make sure that the bottles are labelled so that we can give them out again each night.
