A place to love learn and grow


Welcome to Reception!

In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the children follow a play-based curriculum that will provide them with opportunities to:

  • Develop their confidence, independence and social interaction.
  • Encounter a range of new and exciting experiences, through the power of play. Build upon the skills they have as they leave the home environment to start school. 
  • Develop these skills as an individual.
  • Prepare for the next stage in their primary school curriculum. 


Throughout the school day, the children will learn in a range of different ways. Through whole class focused group work, small group learning, adult-led activities, child-led activities and independent play. 


Please find additional details about this academic year below, if you would like any further information on the EYFS at St John's please do not hesitate to arrange a visit. We always enjoy welcoming new friends and are looking forward to getting to know you all.
