Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to Reception!

Joining King's Hall at Reception your child will receive all the support they need to ensure they fulfill their potential. By working closely with parents and carers, we get to know each individual child, which allows us to create a happy and fun school experience.

Through teaching a broad and balanced curriculum we can meet individual needs and interests. During this period of rapid development, we provide new challenges and opportunities to help children make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow.

At King's Hall we want children to feel happy and excited about spending their time here with us, and for them to develop, engage and learn about the world around them. All this is achieved through our highly qualified staff making the most of our stunning setting and excellent facilities.

Learning Through Play

Learning Through Play


We promote effective early learning through play and exploration, active learning and creating, and problem solving. By developing the children’s ability to make decisions and become independent learners, we offer encouragement at every stage of their learning journey. There continues to be a strong emphasis on learning through play but the balance shifts to more structure as the year progresses.

Throughout the Reception year, a Foundation Stage Profile will also be completed. Teachers will make a series of assessments across seven areas of development known as Early Learning Goals. This then provides a picture of what a child has achieved, knows and can do. There are no tests or tasks and the teachers build the profile over the year.
