Welcome to Reception

"From little pips mighty apples grow!" 


At Appletree Gardens our bespoke and carefully sequenced Early Years curriculum is designed to support all of our pupils to blossom and achieve future success.


We believe it is every child’s right to access an education that is rich in wonder.  At Appletree we celebrate and encourage children to follow their interests and we strive to provide exciting, first hand experiences to help grow curiosity and strengthen and deepen understanding. 


We recognise that each child is unique and we support all children to make progress from their individual starting points.  We are determined that through meaningful, memorable learning experiences we can come together to recognise and grow each individual’s potential for excellence.
