Welcome to Reception!



At Darras Hall Primary School, we aim to provide experiences to excite, engage, inspire, nurture and challenge ALL children and support their own interests. We aim to create a magical experience for children, supporting them to explore the world with awe and wonder.


We aim to provide: 

  • quality and consistency in our setting, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind
  • An enabling environment which is warm, welcoming and nurturing and facilitates a sense of belonging
  • a secure foundation through planning for the learning and development of each individual child, and assessing and reviewing what they have learned regularly 
  • partnership working between practitioners and with parents and carers 
  • equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported



As practitioners, we adapt our teaching to suit the children, their capabilities and their needs in all areas of development. Happiness and well-being is a priority and our highly trained practitioners nurture the confidence and self esteem of all children ensuring they develop the appropriate social skills to communicate and interact effectively, both inside and outside of school.
