Whilst many children start their Bedfont journeys in our Pufflings or Nursery provision, we also have annual admissions to our Reception classes. For September 2024, we will have 60 places available for our Reception cohort.
Your child’s journey can then continue with us into their Reception Year where we have two full time Reception classes. Children can enter into our Reception classes in the September from when they are 4 years old. Each class is staffed by an Early Years teacher and supported by Learning Support Assistants. The Reception year is the final year of the Foundation Stage where children will work towards achieving their Early Learning Goals. In Reception we build on the strong foundations that your child has made throughout their learning journey so far, whether that be in our Nursery, other settings or at home with you. We have two Reception classrooms and the children are also able to access our outdoor area during their free – flow learning. We spend time getting to know each child as an individual and work hard to establish strong relationships between home and school. We pride ourselves on having a broad and exciting curriculum that is relevant and engages our children.
