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 shared areas such as snack and outdoor provision as well as appropriate provision in their own classes.

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 Kozlow 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' plus reader of the week. We will attend the whole school assembly so that their success can be shared and celebrated.  We are always giving verbal praise to children and children can have a sticker for positive behaviours and learning. We also have a class marble jar which is added to when they whole class needs a reward. When the marble jar is full all the children in the class can choose a joint class treat. It could be extra baking for example.   

Key things to know about our class...


Home learning is given out on a Friday and is to be returned the following Monday.

Book bags should be brought into school every day including the reading record.
