Reception

Mrs Canniford (nee Allen) 

As their first year at school I believe it is crucial to ensure that first and foremost children feel happy and secure coming into school. This year is not only about building the foundations of the curriculum, phonics, literacy, maths, physical development, creative arts and understanding the world; it is also about encouraging children to become more independent learners.
