There are 4 key principles that underpin our practice in the Reception Classes at St Matthew's.

 

A Unique Child   We recognise that all children are different. We identify and celebrate their strengths and support their areas for development.

 

Positive Relationships   Our pupils interact well with each other and with the adults in the school.          We encourage parents to be involved with their child's education.

 

Enabling Environments   Our indoor and outdoor areas encourage exploration, investigation and independent learning. Our displays and resources are well maintained and reflect current learning.

 

Learning and Development   Pupils achieve well and make good progress from their starting points. Learning is playful, practical and purposeful and builds upon prior attainment. Our children enjoy coming to school.
