Here at Hob Moor Primary Academy, we have a 45 place Reception. Reception is the building blocks to children beginning their school journey. We provide a stimulating and challenging environment for children to develop their skills, knowledge, friendships and personalities. 

We believe that children learn best by direct experience and interactions between people and their environment, through established routines and inspirational activities. We value the strong relationship with our local community and we encourage a positive partnership between children, their home, the provision and the wider community who help us to support the children in our care, to develop into individuals who will lead happy and rewarding lives.

Session Times

Reception children begin their day at 8.45am and finish at 15:15pm. Please see our daily timetable of the day below:

Our Timetable 

We feel it is really important that children have consistent routines every day. This helps to provide the children with comfort and security. When children feel this sense of trust and safety they are free to play, explore and learn.
