Welcome to Acer and
Silver Birch Reception
Acer and Silver Birch Class
In Reception we see every child as strong confident and competent.
Children who have their own strong ideas.
Children are encouraged to express opinions and make confident choices.
Together, children learn about respecting other people, co-operating and sharing.
We know the difference early years provision can make to the life chances and opportunities that children have access to in later life; we value conversation, language and the ability to communicate effectively.
We are proud to be developing our practice in ‘Sustained Shared Thinking’ and ensuring our children have a voice.
We are particularly proud of our Early Years Provision and the approach we take in our setting to nurture the whole and ‘Unique Child’. We use Development Matters to inform our practice and follow the 17 Early Learning Goals as a guide to ensuring our provision meets the needs of all learners.

Our teachers are Ms Miller & Mrs Howell and Ms Mann
Our support team are Mr Brown, Mrs Jacobs, Miss Sharpe, Mrs Sayer and Mrs Shtein.
