Welcome to our Reception Web page! 


On here you will find lots of information about our weekly routines and details about the exciting learning that will be taking place both indoors and outdoors this term. 


The Reception year is a very exciting time for both parents and children. During this year we will all work together to ensure that your child has a wonderful learning experience and reaches their full potential in all aspects of the curriculum.


At St Edward's we aim to provide a fun, exciting learning environment for the children where they can feel confident to make their own choices, take risks and be independent. Children will have the opportunity to build on their nursery and home experiences and take part in a wide variety of multi-sensory activities in both the classrooms and outdoors. Learning opportunities are planned around different themes as well as the children's interests, with lots of practical experiences. They will be provided with a balance between adult and child led activities. Visits and visitors help enrich the curriculum and parents are encouraged to play an active role in their child's learning. 


We hope your child's first year at school will be both rewarding and enjoyable. If you have any questions or worries please don't hesitate to come and speak to the Reception staff!


Our Reception team are Mr Worthington and Mrs Carr (class teachers), Mrs Naylor, Miss Jones and Mrs Hulme (teaching assistants). We are a big team who all work together to ensure all the Reception children are happy, engaged, supported and challenged.
