If you have been offered a place for your child for Reception beginning in September 2022 you must have accepted your place by Wednesday 4th May 2022. If you applied online and have been offered your first preference school, you do not need to accept online, it will be assumed that you are accepting the place.
Elfrida School will be contacting parents / carers with information regarding stay and play dates for new children in the near future.

The Early Years Curriculum
Within the Early Years, here at Elfrida we want the children to be happy, engaged, confident, independent, curious, resilient and creative learners!
The children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and they are encouraged to explore their own interests and take an independent approach to their development within the 7 areas of learning. They learn through play based activities alongside short directed teaching activities and group work.
The adults working with the children are frequently engaging in high quality interactions and constantly observe and assess each child to build up an individual profile of learning.
The outdoor area is just as important as the indoor area and the children have access to it on a daily basis, whatever the weather!
From September 2022 all children who enter Reception are required to complete a baseline assessment.
We will send more information home to parents regarding the Baseline Assessment nearer to the time of the children completing it.
The Early Years gate opens at 8.45am, and this is on Playgreen Way.
Children are met here by their teacher and will be encouraged to come into school by themselves, saying goodbye to their adult.
Self register, phonics and child initiated learning indoors and outdoors.
Lunchtime for Reception is from 12pm-1.00pm and this will be in the dinner hall.
Reception also have PE in the main hall on certain days.
Our day finishes at 3.15pm Monday to Thursday and 2.15pm on a Friday.
You can phone the school on 0208 698 5755 or email email@example.com
