In reception we have PE every Thursday afternoon. Your child should have their full PE kit in a bag, labelled and in school everyday. Our school PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, black shorts or long pants and black trainers. 


What is the difference between Reception and the Early Years Foundation Stage?

Reception is the initial year of primary school and it is the final stage of the early years foundation stage (EYFS for short). 

The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of your child from birth to 5 years old. 



Parental support is paramount in Reception. We value parental contributions to learning – please share any learning, exciting activities or news with your child’s class teacher through Class Dojo!
