Welcome to Reception!  We look forward to a busy and exciting year working with you and your child! On this page you will be able to find vital information about Reception and find out about how we learn and what we learn.

By the end of Reception we expect all students to be independent and responsible, making them ready for Year 1. It is essential that similar expectations are in place in their home life too. Reception children should be dressing themselves, be able to recognise their own names, put on, fasten and unfasten their own coats and be responsible for some of their own things such as water bottles, clothing and book bags.
