A message for our new families joining Crowlands in September in Nursery or Reception.

Following government guidance, we are still unsure about what September will look like in schools so at this point in time, we are unable to give you a start date for your child. 
​As soon as this changes we will update you.
We will be in touch soon to share information with you about your child's class and teachers. 

Thank you for your patience at this difficult time

 

Welcome to our Reception

Our Staff

Attendance

DAILY ATTENDANCE, WHEN YOUR CHILD IS WELL, IS VITAL FOR YOUR CHILD’S GOOD SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT.

 

Starting School

Entry Process

In order for staff to teach children about the daily routines and to get to know them a small group at a time, children will be phased into Reception during the first couple of weeks of September. This will be arranged as soon as school reopens.

The curriculum is currently organised into the 7 areas of learning listed below:

1.  Personal, Social and Emotional Development
2.  Communication and Language
3.  Physical Development
4.  Literacy
5.  Mathematics
6.  Understanding the World
7.  Expressive Arts and Design
