Reception 2022 - 2023

Our long established Foundation Unit caters for the social, emotional and educational needs of 3-5 year olds. Our unit is divided into nursery and reception classes where each child is special and their individual needs are met.

Children are able to access activities in both classes during continuous provision. This enables staff to plan and cater for all learning styles and abilities.

Alongside a spacious and bright interior, children have access to their own safe, separate and contained outside area. 

The staff of the Foundation Unit are highly experienced in the care and teaching of Early Years children and deliver an exciting, challenging and creative curriculum both indoors and outdoors.

Mrs Holliday, Mrs Lohan and the team welcome you to reception class ! We very much look forward to getting to know your child and helping them to enjoy their first year at school. Moving into reception is an exciting stage in your child’s learning journey and our aim is to provide an enabling and stimulating environment in which your children feel happy to explore and learn.

Keep an eye on our class page for the latest news, information, blogs and photos!


In reception class we use a range of positive rewards
designed to consistently encourage and promote good behaviour; this is to support all children to make
the right choices, enabling them to work, learn and play together in a positive way. 

Each Friday two children are selected to be 'stars of the week'. We have daily rewards where children collect stars for their jar. Once their jar is full (10 stars) the child wins a prize.

Key things to know about our class...
