Entering Reception is a big step both in your child’s life and for you, the adults supporting them.  It is the beginning of their journey into full time education, so it is a very important year. Together as a staff team, and in partnership with you, we will work hard to ensure that your child’s journey into full time education is the best that it can be. 

This is our staff team:

Teachers:
Miss Jane Horner - Monday to Thursday
Mrs Emmeline Boothroyd - Friday
Teaching Assistants: 
Mrs Nicola Williams - every morning
Mrs Zara McIntyre and Mrs Marie Fisher - shared afternoons
Mrs Zara McIntyre will cover PPA on Thursday afternoon

In our reception class, we believe that high quality provision and play underpins development and learning for young children. We encourage our children to become independent, confident and motivated learners through planned purposeful play opportunities and adult led activities, within our provision indoors and outdoors.

The principles of ‘The Early Years Foundation Stage’, the characteristics of effective learning and our knowledge of child development, play a fundamental part in our provision, planning and teaching.  We want the start our children’s learning journeys to be fun, exciting and full of endless possibilities.

Our exciting and fun curriculum aims to promote progress in all areas of learning as outlined in ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage’. We also use observations and assessments to ensure that activities match our children’s needs, interests and stage of development and to identify next steps in their learning.
