Year Groups


Welcome to Reception

Our Reception classes at NEPS are filled with 90 families from within our community. Regardless of each child’s prior experience of Early Years settings we bring everyone on a shared learning journey which begins from the children’s interests. We are fortunate to have a very experienced Early Years team who work together to ensure every child has the opportunity to learn through play and experience well-structured Phonics (through Read Write Inc) and Maths Mastery (through Power Maths) sessions. Reception children moving to Year 1 at the end of the year are ready and excited to continue their learning journey.
