Reception Class is taught by Miss Crosbie and supported in learning by Miss Sam and Mrs Jeanette.
The class is made up of 30 children aged four and five. The role of the teacher is to settle the children into the Early Years environment and support their academic, emotional and social development throughout the year. This is done through carefully planned, adult input sessions for English, Maths and Phonics, one to one reading sessions, and play based learning opportunities to support their academic learning.
We also take the responsibility of nurturing the children very seriously and support them by getting to know the children as individuals and encouraging them to express their own thoughts and opinions with each other as well as teaching them to respect the ideas of others. We encourage the children to develop new friendships with all the children in their class and strive to build each child’s confidence and independence.
The Teaching Assistants work with all the children both in and out of class to provide additional support for all abilities in English, Maths, Phonics and reading.

The school day begins promptly at 8.40 and the gates are closed between 9:00am and 2.50pm. If you visit the school during these hours, please use buzzer entry by the gate to the side of the car park. By doing this we can ensure the children are in a safe environment during the school day. Should you need to collect your child for an appointment, please to come to the Office and sign your child out whilst a member of staff collects them from the classroom.
The school office is open between 8.30am until 3.40pm to assist you with any queries.
When collecting and dropping your child as school, punctuality is really important. Being late can result in causing distress to your child and interrupts their learning. Should there are repeated and/ or unexplained late collections you will be asked to meet with the Headteacher so that any issues can be resolved.
