Starting at 'Big School'

At Gidea Park, our Reception class is situated in a bright and open space that seamlessly connects with the Pre-School, offering a natural progression for our youngest learners. This shared area provides a nurturing environment where children can easily transition and continue their educational journey.

In addition to the indoor space, our Reception class benefits from a sensory garden that extends into the school grounds. This outdoor classroom allows pupils to immerse themselves in nature, exploring the garden and engaging in hands-on activities. Learning through play is encouraged, and lessons can be taken outdoors, providing a refreshing, and stimulating environment.
