Starting School in Reception
We aim to make you and your child feel very much part of the St Mary's family.
Although Reception is the first year your child will encounter at St. Mary's, as a part of the EYFS, (Early Years & Foundation Stage) your child's first year in school is an extension of their pre-school experience. This means a strong emphasis on learning through fun and play, with a careful, gradual progression towards more formal 'lessons
Our classroom has been designed especially for our younger children. It is larger than the other classrooms, allowing more space for a variety of different activities. The children have their own toilets and a partially covered, well-equipped outside learning area to continue their learning.
