St Paul's RC Primary School “the missing piece of your child's education” ‘We are the family of God’


Welcome to Reception

Welcome to our Reception Class, where we love to learn through play!  Your children are taught by Mrs Eddleston, Mrs Bailey and Mrs Hunt. We enjoy working together with you so that your child continues to have a very exciting and productive year.


Our class motto is "I can" because the children are encouraged to believe they can do anything - all they have to do is try! 

Marvellous Me!


This term we will find out what makes us all special! The topic is based on the children and allows them to find out about their new friends (and teachers) as well as building their confidence by sharing information about themselves.

Reception have arrived!

We hope the children have had a fantastic first two weeks at school and are looking forward to next week.

We have been thrilled with how well they have settled into school and learning the different routines. Mrs Prochyra was very impressed that every child carried their own dinner tray. 


Take a look at the photographs of what they have been getting up to in their first week of school.

Please do not hesitate to come in and speak to me if you have any concerns or questions about your child.

Thank you for your co-operation
