The best me that I can be!


Welcome to Reception.


Our videos are fantastic and we are keen for you to see them but our website currently limits file sizes and Mr Reilly is in the process of getting this adjusted. Thank you for your patience.

Frequently asked questions

Please see below some questions we have been asked that we think would benefit all of you.

Do Reception do 'WOW' moments and if so is there an email to send them to?

Do the children do chatter-bags and if so what days please?

We do NOT do emails or chatter-bags in Reception. The children can bring in show and tell items that are related to their current topic or learning. They can give these to the adult on the door as they come to school. The opportunity to share these will be on an ad-hoc basis depending on the time available each day.

I have a volunteer DBS from being a Forest School helper-does this stay valid all through school?

Yes. The DBS will be in place as long as you have a child at the school.

I am able to volunteer for Forest school- would it be helpful to help in the class before hand as well?

You are always welcome to help in class. There will jobs such as reading with children and checking targets where we appreciate the input from volunteers.
