Reception

 

Welcome to The Early Years

We know that children learn best when they are happy, feel safe and have meaningful and secure relationships with their peers and adults. But ultimately children need to feel loved to feel unique. Each child that starts school brings with them their own unique identity, interests, family, likes and dislikes.

Within the EYFS we aim to create positive relationships and attitudes, knowing each child’s starting point, building on what they know and what support and encouragement they need to become life long learners.

We want all our children to be motivated and highly engaged in their learning and to develop and nurture their emotional well-being. Building on their language and developing vocabulary to make every child succeed.

We know that good early years learning happens inside and outside and young children learn best through play, exploration, active learning, creativity and curiosity for the world around them.

Through the 7 areas of learning in the Foundation Stage our children have opportunities to practice, rehearse and learn skills through inside and outdoor activities. They learn to collaborate and build self-confidence and resilience in the face of challenges.

Our continuous provision offers children the opportunity to apply and reinforce skills as well as practice and refine what they know, offering challenge to develop new skills through challenge.

We have 6 classes in our Early Years and 2 outside areas. We work closely together as a team planning and creating the best environment we can to ensure all our children get the best possible start to their education.

Welcome to our school family.
