Year R (Reception)

 Welcome to Reception!

Meeting individual needs of all children lies at the heart of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we deliver personalised learning, development and care to help children get the best possible start to their school education. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum is planned in conjunction with the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and this approach enables an holistic approach that encompasses social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development. Please see our Curriculum page for more information on how we learn in Reception.
