Growing Together


Welcome to our Reception Page!  


Our Reception unit consists of 2 classes:


Butterfly Class:  Mrs Christine Jaurigue with Mrs Emma Hayes and Mrs Dalia Pathak   


Ladybird Class:  Mrs Tanya Smith and Mrs Wendy Birch with Miss Tanya Alborough

Both classes have a spacious learning environment with all areas of continuous provision available.

The children can also easily access the outdoor area, choosing where they would like to play and learn.

Our aim is to make sure learning is fun and varied and follows the EYFS Curriculum.


Our school motto is 'Growing Together'.  This begins as we welcome children into their Reception Year.  We pride ourselves on helping the children to build on their emotional and academic foundations in a safe, inclusive and happy environment.  We hope that the children and parents will think of us as an extension to their family. 

We strive for learning to be inspiring, challenging and lots of fun, where curiosity is nurtured. Our enthusiastic adults help children to thrive, whilst developing a life long love of learning.

Our school values of love, peace, courage, trust and friendship underpin our school community and everything we do in the EYFS.

EYFS Phonics Presentation - October 2021

Still image for this video
Please watch and enjoy the EYFS Phonics Presentation introduced by Mrs Smith as she will skilfully explain to you the phonic strategies used here at St. Bede to help develop reading and writing skills. We do hope that it proves to be a very useful information presentation in helping you to support your child(ren) with their reading and writing skills.
