Reception class is part of the early years foundation stage unit alongside nursery.  Our unit has ample space for teaching, continuous provision and free flow between the two classes.  This is where early reading and mathematics begins in a rich learning environment.

Miss Woodward is the class teacher and Mrs Jones is the teaching assistant.  Mrs Ross supports children with SEND.
