Starting Reception is a very important and exciting time for children and parents. Children’s first experience of school forms the foundation from which all learning behaviours and attitudes begin. In Reception we nurture children to develop their learning characteristics and celebrate the process of learning.

All the children are supported by a structured daily routine where they are encouraged to be independent, solve problems, take risks and recognise and reflect on their own learning.

In Reception the children have lots of opportunities to learn and explore through quality play both indoors and outdoors. They learn through a mixture of adult led and child initiated learning, both of which are equally important.
