Welcome to Reception. This is the final foundation year for your child. In Reception, children have the opportunity to become independent and curious learners. We achieve this through active learning within the classroom provision. Children are encouraged to think critically, be creative learners and explore their surroundings.

The children have access to a range of areas of learning including:


Four Specific areas of learning:

  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts & Design


Three Prime areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication & Language
