Reception Class

We believe that children learn to be strong and independent through nurturing and secure relationships from both their parents as well as class teachers in the fundamental years of their early education.

Our Syllabus – Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Our early year’s education syllabus encompasses the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and includes the seven areas of learning:

  1. Personal, Social, Emotional Development
  2. Communication and Language
  3. Physical Development
  4. Literacy
  5. Mathematics
  6. Expressive Arts and Design
  7. Understanding the World

Our classroom encourages free-flow between the outside area and inside classroom allowing the children to make independent choices regarding their learning environment, demonstrating that academics are not solely associated with the more traditional classroom setup.

Early reading and writing are fostered through the use of the Sounds-Write approach, which will encourage your child to read and write from their first day with us. We incorporate Talk for Writing to encourage story-telling and writing, allowing the children to be immersed in the world of traditional tales and fables.

From day one, children in our reception class incorporate the following into their educational journey

  • Use of whole school facilities including the Dining Hall and Theatre
  • Learn half an hour of Spanish a week
  • Learn half an hour of music a week
  • Spend half an hour a week in our Swimming Pool

Reception class spend the majority of their day with their class teacher, frequently working on an individual basis, and have the advantage of specialist teachers for PE, Forest School, Music and Spanish.

Lunch is served “family style” in the main dining room and eaten with an adult in order to develop the all-important table manners and mealtime discussion.


We are currently accepting applications for all year groups for Autumn 2020.
