Your children start their education at Falcons Primary with us in their Reception year. In Reception we strive to develop active, independent learners who question and care for the world around them.
We usually have two Reception classes. Each class is led by a teacher and supported by a qualified level 3 teaching assistant or Nursery Nurse. The classes have separate areas for carpet time but then share an open-plan reception classroom and outdoor classroom. This year our classes are:
The Owls - led by Ms Southard
The Robins - led by Miss Popat
We believe that our children learn best through a fun, play-based approach to learning both indoors and outdoors and we plan and develop exciting and stimulating activities and opportunities to achieve this.
Children are assessed at the end of Reception to see whether they have achieved their GLD (Good Level of Development), this is assessed across 12 areas of learning against the Early Learning Goals (see more about the curriculum in Reception here). Our results have always matched or most frequently exceeded the average Leicester outcomes.
