Housed in the same purpose-built building as Pre-Reception, the Reception classroom and outside areas allow the children to continue to develop and grow through the principals of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).  The class teacher and a full-time teaching assistant provide an imaginative and engaging curriculum, based on well-planned play led opportunities and stimulating adult-led activities. We encourage outdoor exploration, nature based activities and exercise as part of our everyday.

This allows the children to become creative and critical thinkers, with a positive attitude to learning, the confidence to make the best of their abilities and to lay down firm foundations for their academic development.

Children have access to all main school facilities and receive specialist teaching in Sport, Dance, Music and French. Children leave Reception fully prepared to make their exciting transition to the main school to continue their journey within the Lyndhurst family.
