Reception in East Horsley

About Our Reception

Your child’s happiness and success is at the heart of everything we do here at Glenesk and as your child takes the first formal steps along their educational journey, we will provide them with exceptional teaching, small class sizes and superb pastoral care.

Like Nursery and Rising Reception, we continue follow an enhanced EYFS curriculum, with an emphasis on first-hand learning and well-structured play activities enhanced with a range of rich learning experiences and activities. The EYFS incorporates seven areas of learning:

  • Rising Reception (Ages 3-4 years) Reception (4-5 years)
  • Flexible wraparound care from 7.45am to 6pm daily
  • Fabulous facilities including an indoor heated pool
  • Wide variety of after school activities
  • Year round holiday club provision
  • Animal care with our School pets

and much more…

“The Early Years provision is outstanding where children start school in the nursery and receive a seamless transition through to Year 1.”

Special Needs Assistance

Glenesk is sympathetic to children with learning difficulties and has a Special Educational Needs Co-coordinator who is responsible for ensuring that all children receive extra support should it be deemed necessary. This support is either given individually or within the classroom in small groups.

Latest SIS Inspection Report

Our latest inspection in March 2017 highlights:

The quality of education provided by the school is outstanding. All children make at least good and many make outstanding progress. Achievement is outstanding because teaching is consistently of a very high quality.”

Next Step After Reception

Our children come into Years 1 and 2 excited and ready to learn after a fantastic start to their educational journey in the Early Years. Our provision for children in Years 1 and 2 builds on the EYFS curriculum and follows key elements of the National Curriculum. It is an enhanced and creative programme and includes additional specialist activities and lessons.
