Classes and the School Day

Year R - Dolphin Class
Welcome to Early Years and Dolphin Class. Our full time class teacher is Mrs Sarah Willgoose, who is supported by Mrs Laura Stanton, our full time Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
Mrs Stanton covers planning time for class teachers three afternoons a week and Mrs Becky Sewell, our Teaching Assistant, works part time in Dolphin Class on these occasions to ensure we have adequate adult learning support for our children in the class.
Mrs Stanton leads Forest School and outdoor learning.
Development Matters
At Witley we use the DfE Development Matters guidance to help us plan our curriculum. Please click below for further information.
Reception Baseline Assessment (RBA)
The RBA is a short, interactive and practical assessment of your child’s early literacy, communication, language and mathematics skills when they begin school, using materials that most children of your child’s age will be familiar with. At Witley, your child will be participating in the reception baseline assessment (RBA) within the first 6 weeks of starting reception.
