Reception is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. This is the stage of children’s development from birth to the end of Reception. It describes how your child should be kept safe and cared for and how all concerned can make sure that your child achieves the most they can in their earliest years of life.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which has seven areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development – how to manage our feelings, behaviour and get on with others.
  • Communication and Language – listening, speaking and understanding language.
  • Physical Development – keeping ourselves healthy and developing our large and small movements.
  • Literacy – enjoying and sharing books and mark making.
  • Mathematics – counting and recognising some numbers and using and talking about shapes.
  • The World – looking at and talking about where we live
  • Expressive Arts and Design – exploring painting, gluing, model making and music.

During the Reception Year, we assess the children using the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile. We make observations of the children while they are playing and use these to track the progress that the children are making.
