Welcome to Reception
Teacher – Mrs K Clay
Teaching Assistants – Mrs Craven, Mrs Mannion and Miss James
Our curriculum is rooted in stories, singing, the seasons and rich, real-life experiences. It is designed to provide our children with a memorable and joyful early school experience. We aim to give each child the skills, knowledge and a solid foundation on which to build in their further learning. Through core experiences, planned purposeful play and high-quality interactions we promote the importance of making links beyond the local environment; opening our children’s eyes to the jobs, landscapes, cultures and opportunities in the wider world.
We work tirelessly to ensure all our children become confident speakers and thoughtful listeners. We expose our children to a broad and ambitious vocabulary and teach them the power of language for communicating ideas, solving problems and developing a strong self-identity. We carefully choose stories, rhymes and songs to weave a golden thread through all learning. We make story time a priority as we believe that sharing books enables our children to make connections and relationships, develops their imagination and allows them to become confident independent readers who love books and reading.
Children leave our early years with knowledge, skills and memories to draw upon in their next stage of their learning. Our children have the curiosity, resilience, self-control, independence and creativity necessary to succeed. They have developed respect for themselves and others, built strong positive relationships and know they are a valued member of our school community.
Our free communication app allows us to provide parents with instant access to our important messages and up to date school information.
Please contact the school office if you have not received your personal invite.
