Welcome to Early Years Reception, our team; Mrs K Morland,  Mrs D Rogerson and Mrs C Bell. We aim to help our young learners to stay safe, enjoy and achieve whilst in their first year of school. Through play, in a safe but challenging environment, children develop their emotions and creativity, social and intellectual skills, and their language skills. This takes place both in and outdoors and we aim to further children's knowledge and extend their learning. We provide an environment where children can take risks, solve problems, and practise new ideas and skills independently and with others. By observing and listening, we allow children the time to explore and have a go before intervening. 

 Class Dojo can be used for communication between teachers and parents during school time. 

How to access Class Dojo
