In Reception we have lots of fun, make new friends and are always busy learning both inside and outside the classroom! Our team around the child work closely together to ensure we set good foundations for entering Year 1 and beyond. We provide a highly creative and stimulating environment with challenging learning opportunities through play and adult led teaching. There are 17 Early Learning Goals in Reception and 7 areas of learning. These areas of learning are exactly the same as those in a Nursery setting so we should be viewed as the final stage in your child’s early learning journey. When your child finishes Reception in July you will be given a report which tells you whether or not your child has met the Early Learning Goal (ELG) in each aspect.
Home School Partnership
Strong partnerships between school and home are very important to your child’s learning. Within school we have two family support workers, Mrs Felgate and Mrs McMahon. They are available to discuss any family/child concerns you may have. We also have effective partnerships with the school nursing team, speech and language therapists and other external providers. Although you see your child’s teacher daily please do not hesitate to make an appointment at the main office if you have any concerns. If you would like to share any of your child’s achievements from home please request a proud cloud form so we can celebrate with them in school too.
