In Reception, provision is tailored to your child's interests and needs, to ensure your child has the best start in life.
Your child will learn in whole class, group sessions and through child initiated activities. Both indoor and outdoor continuous provision is delivered in a structured environment where your child can explore and flourish as an active learner.
Your child will be encouraged to explore the 7 areas of learning independently, building on the characteristics of learning and their reasoning/ problem solving skills. At St Catherine's we follow the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage framework, and assess formatively in an on-going process via an online learning journey. We ensure that we see the best of your child and all of the amazing talents they have to offer.
We value every child as an individual, who we place at the center of everything we do, and every decision we make.
