The Reception year is part of the Early Years Foundation Stage. This curriculum has a distinct identity for young children from birth to the end of the Reception year and is about developing key learning skills such as listening, speaking, concentration, persistence and co-operation. It is also about developing communication, literacy and numeracy skills that will prepare children for Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum. In Reception we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (PDF, 602.63 kB) (2023). The Progression of Skills for each learning area can be found within Curriculum subject pages.
