“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their potential” (EY Framework 2021)

Our reception children are encouraged to be independent, creative and to be the best that they can be in their own learning throughout their year with us.

We believe that play is the most effective vehicle for learning in reception, for children to engage in a safe, nurturing and enabling environment both indoors and outdoors.

Mrs Sahota, Mrs Hunt, Miss Butler and Mrs Chana will plan and help the children through their learning journey in Reception.

Miss Smith, Miss Ali, Mrs Hartland and Miss Jemejanova will also be on hand to support the children every day.

Together we will learn and improve on our reading skills; number skills; looking after nature (including animals) and also how to manage and express our feelings safely.

We look forward to welcoming you to our VPA reception family.
