Reception

Whilst in Reception, staff will be getting to know your child really well. This will help them to plan specifically for individual children and address all specific needs.  Teachers will set a routine that children will follow every day and support any child who finds this difficult.  It is absolutely normal for all children to feel a little afraid and scared of the changes in their life.  We will do everything to make sure we help your child to feel secure and safe.  Children are very resilient and with a consistent approach every day children very quickly adapt and feel like they belong with us in our Reception class.  Teachers will also record learning and progress through our planning and assessment. We document successful learning, linked to our curriculum in our Early Years Books. These are shared with you regularly but are also available to see on request should you wish. We encourage that you as the parent/carer add to your children’s Early Years Books.
