At Oaklands, the children get off to a great start to their primary school education.  The setting is a warm and welcoming place which places children’s individual needs at the forefront of the curriculum. 

Reception is a crucial year where the children build the foundations of good learning.  the day is a mixture of adult led teaching, small group work and child initiated learning. 

The year is carefully planned to be small steps from their time at nursery to entering into Key Stage One .  As the year progresses, the timetable changes to match the children’s growing  maturity and development.  

There are two classes within out Year R phase.  Each class has a qualified teacher leading the learning who work and plan together to ensure that the learning is as effective as possible.  

Reception 2021 starters

Choosing your child’s first school is a very important decision.  We believe that the best way to know if the school is right for your family is to come and see it in person and be able to talk to one of our senior leaders. 

Contact the school today to make your personalised tour of the school for your child to join our Reception class.
