The Early Years Foundation Stage applies to children from birth to the end of the reception year. In our school, all children join us, full time, after a short period of staggered entry.
The curriculum in Reception covers seven areas of learning and development. All areas of learning and development are connected to one another and are covered through children's interests and broad topics.
The areas of learning and development are
- personal, social and emotional development
- physical development
- communication and language
- understanding the world
- expressive arts and design
Children in our Reception classes have fantastic facilities for both indoor and outdoor learning. We have spacious and stimulating classrooms and outside areas that the children use throughout the school day.
