In September 2018 we opened our doors to our first reception class.

The Reception year is part of the Early Year Foundation Stage. The curriculum has a distinct identity for young children from birth to the end of the Reception year and is about developing key learning skills such as speaking, listening, concentration, persistence and co-operation. It is also about developing communication, literacy and numeracy skills.

‘The effect of parental engagement over a student’s school career is equivalent to adding two or three years to that student’s education.’ John Hattie

The Reception children have taken home letters regarding their phonics, letter and number formation and reading. These letters explain how you can support the children at home. If you have any questions about supporting your child’s development at home, please speak to Miss Tancock, Class Teacher.
