Reception

Welcome to the Foundation Stage, the first steps of your child's learning journey at the Abbey Catholic Primary School.

Every child deserves the best possible start in their education and through parental and teacher support they can fulfill their potential. The Reception year will lay the foundations to enable your child to become an independent and self-motivated learner throughout their whole school career.

The Reception team is led by Mrs Small, Mrs Howard, Mrs Jinks and Miss Williams. The phase leader is Mr McTernan.
