Reception

An Inclusive School

It's an all inclusive, welcoming school. I've got three little boys who love it here and so do I.

Relationships between pupils and teachers are strong.

Teachers have high expectations of pupils’ work ethic and behaviour and have developed a good climate in which children can learn.

Minet Infant School is genuinely a warm, friendly education environment.

I am delighted with the progress that my daughters have made at Minet - you have nurtured them to achieve excellent progress in key learning areas such as reading and maths.

I am delighted with the progress that my daughters have made at Minet – you have nurtured them to achieve excellent progress in key learning areas such as reading and maths.

Throughout the Reception year, we continue to learn through the seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. More information about these can be found here.

Child-initiated learning forms a large part of our day and involves children following their interests, exploring the engaging environment and being supported in their learning by the teaching staff.

We compile a Learning Journey which celebrates and tracks each child’s unique experiences. Over time it tells the story about your child’s learning, friends and their experiences with other children and adults. Our staff observe and notice each child as they play and engage with their environment. This helps us to support their individual interests, develop their wellbeing and encourage them to deepen and broaden their learning.

We move onto Phase 2 and beyond in Phonics (still using the ‘Letters & Sounds’ scheme) and begin to teach children the sounds different graphemes make.

Working with families in hugely important to us and we run several parental workshops through the year on supporting your child through the EYFS, as well as in Phonics & mathematics.

Below are some educational websites that you may wish to use with your children over the summer holidays:
