St Elisabeth's CE Primary School


Welcome to our Reception  Page 

From September 2019, our Reception team are:  Mrs H Williams, Mrs D Hodgkins and Mrs M Gittins, with support provided by Mrs a Ryan and Mrs J McDermott.

Our bright, welcoming and stimulating learning environments in both Nursery and Reception reflect our ethos.  We consider our EYFS classes to be a very special place where children feel happy, secure and valued. In an environment such as this, children develop confidence, a range of skills (life-long), and a love of learning – the perfect foundations for entering school life. Christian values are at the heart of all that we do and the themes of friendship, endurance, thankfulness run throughout our busy days.

A typical day in EYFS - Reception starts with our open door policy where you as parents or carers are invited into our setting with your child. This is an opportunity for you to carry out a learning activity with your child or share information about your child with the teacher or key worker. We value our strong relationships with parents and families.

We teach a range of carpet sessions through the day followed by focussed group activities (indoor and outdoor). In between these times, your child will be encouraged to carry out independent learning in our ‘Continuous Provision’ areas. In these areas, we provide a range of well-planned, purposeful and stimulating resources to promote fun, challenging and child-led learning experiences.

Our curriculum is tailored to our children’s interests and needs therefore is flexible and varied, and, as a result, our children are engaged and enthused.
