Pre Reception Information


Ages 3 – 4.7

The aim of Pre-Reception at The Junior School is to help your child’s experience of moving from home to school a happy and rewarding one. We start to establish good habits and high expectations which provide a solid foundation for learning as he/she progresses through The Junior School. Choosing to place your child in Pre-Reception will secure your child’s learning journey throughout our school.

The curriculum is based on the Foundation Stage Early Learning Goals of the English National Curriculum. These provide a structured programme of rich learning experiences ; through structured play , a whole range of important skills are nurtured and developed.

There are four Pre-Reception classes each taught by a qualified teacher and a learning support assistant.

The minimum age for children entering the Pre-Reception class in September is 3 years.

Admission is by interview with one of our Pre-Reception teachers who will assess your child through play.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it
