Welcome to English Martyrs Catholic Primary School. We are so pleased that you are choosing to start your school journey with us.

The videos below will help you get some idea of our Reception provision and what to expect when you child begins school.

In Reception Class we will continue to work through the Early Years Framework, which guides us in supporting your child to reach the Early Learning Goals. Click on each of the links below to find out more.
Learning to read and write is a huge part of the Reception Year. Developing your child's phonic knowledge plays a crucial role in this. (Don't worry we will explain nearer the time exactly how to support your child's reading development!) For now, click on the links below to get an idea of what it's all about!
At English Martyrs' we understand that all children are unique and learn in different ways. We therefore aim to provide a variety of learning experiences through child and adult led play and eventually more formal lesson times.
Our indoor and outdoor areas provide children with opportunities to explore, learn and engage with other children, as well as the world around them.
