Join Reception 2022

Places are currently available for Reception 2022 and we would be delighted to welcome interested families to Stepping Stones on Monday 15 November or our next working open morning on Thursday 18 November. To find out more visit our Admissions Pages.

A typical Reception year group at RSM has 44 children, divided into three classes (two of 15 and 1 of 14). This is made up of approximately 30 children who move up from our Kindergarten and 14 who come to us from other settings. Many families who join at this stage are new to the area having moved from London or overseas.

The Reception children enjoy a purposeful curriculum with a strong focus on the individual and child initiated learning. There is an extensive outdoor learning programme in place throughout the school and the children spend plenty of time outside in the fresh air. They have regular Forest School as well as using the grounds, nature reserve, outdoor classroom and pond for daily adventures and fun with their friends.

The children’s Early Years Scores are exceptional, and they move on to Year 1 with a strong foundation on which to build their learning as well as the confidence to try new things and learn from their mistakes.

There is a comprehensive and flexible year-round wraparound care programme for all children at RSM from age 2 1/2 to 11 years.
