In Class Reception, we have designed our curriculum to meet the requirements of the EYFS framework for our pupils. Families are supported as their child moves into full time compulsory education through information packs, face to face meetings and visits to school.

Our pupils continue their journey, as we provide opportunities to learn, develop and embed both Prime (Communication and Language, Personal and Social Development, and Physical Development) and Specific learning (Literacy, Maths, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design) skills, which are the building blocks of their future learning. Our RE curriculum Come and See, builds on the children’s experiences and supports them in developing their own relationship with Jesus.

We love books and utilise every opportunity to foster children’s love of stories and reading. Through the Talk for Writing approach and using books to introduce concepts and themes, children learn to retell, respond to and create their own stories, rhymes and poems.

Our timetable is designed to allow the opportunity for children to have extended periods of child-initiated play, ensuring that they are able to attain a deep level of learning.

Staff work with children in their focused tasks and play, interacting, challenging, questioning, giving feedback and we use Tapestry to document the learning journey of the individual.
