An introduction to Reception...

  • By the end of Reception most children will have achieved some or all of the ELG’s (Early Learning Goals). 
  • Children who are still working towards achieving the ELG’s will continue to work on these during Year 1.
  • Parents/Carers will be updated at regular intervals throughout the year on their child’s progress. 
  • Parents/Carers will receive an end of year report in the Summer term celebrating their child’s progress and achievement. ‚Äč

A Typical Day in Reception...

  • Within the classroom you can expect to see children participating in a variety of child initiated and teacher led sessions. 
  • Your child's class teacher and TA’s will be observing the children and documenting their achievements.
