Within Reception we aim to give your child the opportunity to learn through play. To facilitate this, we have a well-resourced classroom and an inviting outdoor space where we aim to make your child’s first year in school a fun and exciting experience!


Please feel free to speak to us about any worries or concerns. Do not hesitate to come and chat, we are always happy to help!
