Year R

In Reception classes, children continue to make good progress from their different starting points and are prepared well for the next stage of their education. The relationships between children and staff are good and children know they can approach any member of staff for help. Children are encouraged to develop their early reading and writing skills from the time they start Reception. Teaching of phonics is precise and has led to clear improvements.
