Building Structure

The EYFS framework forms the basis for the curriculum but at this point a more formalised structured timetable is introduced to get our Reception children ready for the transition to Year 1. Learning is a balance of pupil-initiated activity and teacher-supported work. Independent writing is developed and basic number skills embedded, time is spent exploring the natural world where pupils investigate and develop their ideas.

Specialist Subjects

Music and Languages are taught from Reception with timetabled lessons in Physical Education, Games and Swimming each week. They will also start to explore the digital arena as iPads and Chromebooks are used to enhance learning through games and activities. 

Your child will grow and flourish in a vibrant community where children are the centre of everything. Through memorable learning experiences they develop and acquire the skills needed for their future success.
