Reception Entry

Places in Reception at Edge Grove are limited. Each year we are looking to fill three classes of 20 children, including the children who move up from our Nursery (around 30 children).

At the Assessment for Reception Entry, children are seen in a small group setting and observed by our Early Years staff for approximately thirty minutes. We invite children to participate in a number of age-appropriate activities in small groups, for which no preparation is necessary.  We will always put potential Reception children in a group with others of a similar age; we know that there is a big difference between a child who may already have turned 4 with one who has only recently turned 3.

The assessment is supplemented by a report from the child’s current Nursery or Childminder.

During the assessment, we aim to maintain a warm and relaxed atmosphere so that the children (and their parents!) need not feel anxious.

Offers are made soon after the assessment.

"From the minute we walked through the door at Edge Grove, we were made to feel so welcome and as if nothing was too much trouble. The teachers we met at the assessment day were so warm and friendly, and really took the time to get to know our son"
