Welcome to Reception

Your child will either be:


a ‘Terrific Tawny Owl’, or, 

a ‘Remarkable Robin’,

a ‘Wonderful Woodpecker.’

If you would like to know more about any of the information about Reception, or you have a question or concern, please feel welcome to come and speak to Mrs Miller (Early Years Leader) or Mr Matthews (Assistant Headteacher) or speak to one of the Reception team.

Please note that Reception have PE on a Thursday.

Infant children must not wear jewellery.

Who will be working with my child?

Each class has its own teacher who is your child’s Key Worker. Part of their role is to help ensure that every child’s learning is tailored to meet their individual needs, to help the child become familiar with the setting, offer a settled relationship for the child and build a relationship with you, the parents and carers. They are also supported in this by learning teaching assistants.
