We are delighted to welcome your child to Reception. We hope that their time with us is a happy one. Our first priority is to make all children feel happy and secure in school so that they can become successful learners. We ensure each child is greeted as they come into school each morning. Every child is an individual and they will each be given opportunities and support to develop their skills and interests at their own stage. We work hard to foster curiosity, determination and a love of learning which will provide a firm foundation for their future education.


Parents are very welcome in our school. We value the skills and knowledge that you have and like to use these to enhance the children’s learning. So, if you have a skill that you think you may be able to share or have time that you can spare, please speak to us. Extra pairs of hands are always welcome!


Each term we write a Newsletter. Please take a look at all the exciting things we are doing!

Reception's Wedding April 2017

Still image for this video
Our topic this term has been Celebration. As part of our topic we looked at a traditional Christian Wedding. We did lots of research into what happens at a wedding and using our new knowledge we planned our own wedding. We all had a special part to play in the wedding and we invited our parents along to enjoy the celebrations. We held the wedding at Bistre Chrurch in Buckley. Reverend Batchelor lead the service. We then went over to the church hall for the Reception.
