The children in Reception year (Year R) follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum and work towards the Early Learning Goals in seven areas of learning and development:

  • Communication and Language

  • Physical Development

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the World

  • Expressive Arts and Design

An excellent induction programme ensures that pupils settle quickly and happily into school life. Much is learnt through planned play in an indoor and outdoor environment where children feel included, secure and valued. Children are assessed at the end of Year R using the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.
