Welcome to the Reception Space!

In Reception your child will follow a curriculum in an environment that will provide the opportunity to:

  • Constantly encounter new experiences
  • Develop confidence
  • Extend and develop their skills
  • Build on what they already know
  • Allow your child to learn as an individual

Throughout the day your child will learn through focused activities, adult led activities, child initiated activities and independent play. Click here to download our non negotiable curriculum leaflet.
