Clifton School and Nursery

Reception

Clifton pupil at Forest School

Just the other side of our playground from Nursery are our two Reception classes. Being in the same building as Years 1- 3 helps to foster a sense of community and confidence in the wider school environment, and encourages friendships across academic years.

It is in Reception that pupils’ curiosity and creativity really start to develop. This guides our curriculum, which, through a variety of themes and texts, nurtures each child’s unique talents and perspectives.

Reception children have access to all the same outdoor facilities used by the Nursery, and the recently refurbished classrooms offer a bright and inspiring space for messy play and active learning with our teachers and full-time teaching assistants.
