Learning in Reception

At Lockleys North Primary school we believe that all learners can and will be successful. Our vision is to develop a community of empowered learners who strive for success. Our values shape our vision, beliefs and way of being. Respect, Care and Concern, Honesty and Pursuit of Excellence guide every part of our culture, relationships, and teaching and learning.

In Reception we work collaboratively together to plan and provide the best possible learning experiences for our students. We see ourselves as co-learners, working with children as they learn, supporting them and  fostering independence.

With small class sizes, our teaching staff endeavour to know each child as a unique person. Our learning experiences encourage wonder, independence, collaboration and self-confidence, as young learners are encouraged to be creative, critical, ethical and divergent thinkers.

Our Reception learning spaces capture and extend the inquisitive nature of young children. In a safe and supportive environment, there is a strong emphasis on the development of personal and social capabilities, oral language and curiosity alongside the core curriculum areas of literacy and numeracy.
