Reception Class

We believe that children learn to be strong and independent through nurturing and secure relationships with both their parents and their class teachers.

Our indoor and outdoor environments, and small classes play a key and important role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning in our positive and safe surroundings.

Our 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

We have a dedicated outdoor area to encourage free-flow learning and your child will spend their whole day with their dedicated teacher who delivers all their classes.

They can go into the Year 1 classroom which aids transition for the next academic year, and enables them to get to know other age groups in the Infant & Junior School as well as the Year 1 teacher.

We incorporate the initiative ‘Movement for Learning’ to help pupils learn skills to aid general learning in order to improve academic and behaviour outcomes.

From day one, your child would:

  • Use 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

We have invested in age-appropriate furniture for our Reception classroom, all made from natural resources and allows for independent access to materials to benefit learning.

For lunch, a special menu suited to our younger pupils is delivered to the Reception pupils at their table in the dining hall.
