Learning  »  Reception  »  Basic Information

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new children and parents. Parents currently in Reception have access to 'Tapestry', an electronic learning journal that documents each childs learning and achievements through staff observations, photos and videos.

If you are a prospective parent or a visitor to the site  you will get a flavour of our Early Years provision by looking at our general photographs and videos on the Reception area of the school website.

We have 2 Reception classes with 30 children in each class. We explore and learn within 2 indoor classrooms and 1 large outdoor classroom. The teachers in Reception are Miss Johnson and Mrs Youlton. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Ford, Mrs Eastwood and Miss Gilson.

Our aims in Reception are to foster a love of learning through exciting, creative and motivating provision through our classroom and outdoor learning environments. We strive to build strong relationships with parents and careers. We provide opportunities every half term for parents and careers to come into school and share the learning experiences with their children. 

Our vision is for our children to become confident, independent and resilient learners who can lead their own learning. We want our children to ask questions and be curious about the world around them. Please have a look at our Reception blog to see all of the amazing learning that happens in Reception .
