Happiness & success in Reception at Glenesk
Your child’s happiness and success is at the heart of everything we do here at Glenesk. The formal start to their full-time education begins in Reception. Some children will already be comfortable and familiar with the main school building, having spent a year in Rising Reception. This ensures a smooth and seamless transition which is supported by small class sizes and plenty of individual teacher attention.
In Reception, we continue to build your child’s academic foundations by following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which incorporates the following seven areas of learning:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication and language
- Understanding of the world
- Physical development
- Expressive arts and design
We will provide your child with exceptional teaching, small class sizes and superb pastoral care. You will receive regular updates on your child’s progress with the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher throughout the year as well as at the Parents’ Evenings held in the Autumn and Spring terms.
We put strong emphasis on traditional values such as good manners, respect for others and individual responsibility
