RECEPTION

Welcome to Reception

In Reception Class the principles that form the basis of your child’s education are to provide a safe, welcoming, happy and stimulating atmosphere, where we can motivate and encourage your child in the learning process.

By offering a wide range of activities using our indoor and outdoor environments we aim to discover and develop the particular needs and strengths of each child and build upon their independence. This will enable them to explore all areas of the curriculum.

Each child’s learning journey is individual to their needs at this age, as they develop at different stages during this year.
