Reception class follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The provision of a balanced, broad-based, relevant curriculum is presented in an ethos that helps every pupil feel happy, safe and secure. Structured and child initiated activities foster the development of self-confident, independent pupils who demonstrate an enthusiasm for learning. All pupils have an outdoor Forest School lesson once a week and go swimming in the Summer Term. Subject specialist staff teach Computing, Music, PE and Performing Arts.
