Our Reception Classes

Our 60 Reception pupils are taught in one large open plan classroom. The teachers and teaching assistants work collaboratively to ensure all 7 areas of learning are met within the exciting learning environment.

The children are allowed access to the outdoors everyday, we know that some children learn best outside and therefore we provide outdoor learning opportunities come rain or shine!

We use the EYFS curriculum to ensure our enabaling environment provides rich learning opportunities, support for children to take risks and explore, uses stimulating resources and enables fun and playful teaching!
