Welcome to Reception


We would like to extend a special welcome to our new children and their families!

The Reception year is a very special part of your child’s school journey. We strive to provide a unique, challenging and inspirational curriculum based on new and memorable experiences.

Establishing strong relationships with our pupils and their families is our priority at the beginning of the school year.  During the year we will work with your child to learn and understand their individual needs and support them in their learning and development.

We believe that communication is integral to your child’s success. Class teachers are available both before and after school to receive messages and celebrate successes.


Our teaching team includes Mrs Ellender and Ms Harwood (Class Teachers) and Mrs Edwards and Miss Holmes (Teaching Assistants).


Our Autumn Term theme is  ‘Identity’. Our new bookshelf contains a selection of high quality texts to inspire our curriculum:

You Choose by Nick Sharrat and Pippa Goodhart

Tree – Seasons Come, Seasons Go by Britta Teckentrup and Patricia Hegarty

The Color Monster goes to School by Anna Llenas

The Same but Different too by Karl Newson and Kate Hindley

Mixed by Arree Chung

The Mr Men Series by Roger Hargreaves
