Reception has 2 classes of 30 pupils. We share our 3 learning areas to ensure all children can access all curriculum areas every day. The children also join KS1 on the big playground at play time.

We work closely with nursery, sharing the ‘big playground’ with them once a week, going on trips together and performing our sold out Christmas shows!

In our Nursery and Reception at Barry, we believe it’s important to teach children that sometimes they will be given the power to make choices and enable them to make decisions on their own and in groups.

In the early years, we teach children that their opinions are important and that each child’s thoughts and feelings should be listened to and valued.

The following British Values are incorporated and demonstrated through EYFS learning and play:
• Democracy
• The rule of law
• Individual liberty
• Mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs

At our school, we are lucky to be part of a wide, varied community where not everyone is the same. Our setting is inclusive and respectful. We value and celebrate the many faiths, cultures and races represented within our classes.

The Reception year starts with home visits in July.

Barry Reception is a fun, play based setting in which the children are able to learn and grown in a safe, secure environment.
