Starting Reception in September 2024


‘Bringing Learning Alive’

Our Early Years provision is one of our greatest assets. We stimulate children’s natural
curiosity and nurture their capacity to learn and to express themselves as individuals. We
support them to embrace the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, in which they are encouraged to take ownership for their learning, challenge themselves, become resilient
and develop independence. 

The children access learning opportunities in a well-resourced inside and outside environment.
Skills are developed through adult-led activities, and these skills are then used in a wide and exciting variety of structured play-based learning experiences. As children develop they quickly move towards a greater emphasis being placed upon the key skills of reading, writing and numeracy, appropriate to their individual level of development. Throughout Reception, there remains at all times an ethos where structured play and key skills from the breadth of the EYFS curriculum lie at the heart. We believe if a child is enthused, encouraged and engaged they will learn and thrive.

Our team encourages our children to have a love of learning. We build the foundations for all later learning and are proud of the start we give them in a caring, stimulating and positive environment. Our children are an intrinsic part of our school community and they flourish in our care.
