Meet the Reception Team

In Reception we have two classes named red and blue room who share an exciting and engaging indoor and outdoor environment where children enjoy learning through play.

In our school we strive to establish a happy and secure environment in which to learn and be cared for.  We promote positive attitudes to learning, an enthusiasm for knowledge and the confidence to become successful learners.  Children explore, discover and investigate using a range of open ended resources, follow their own interests and access quality adult led learning time. We believe that children learn best when they are engaged in real, hands on, exciting experiences. Adults facilitate, extend and challenge children’s learning.

Take a look at our children in action - learning through play.
