Portrait of our Headteacher by a Year 2 Child from Class 9

Welcome to Ridgeway Infant School. Our dedicated and enthusiastic team provide an environment that nurtures independence and a desire to learn. Our school is uniquely situated in extensive grounds with forest schools used on site. We utilise our locality to the full and our curriculum is active and purposeful with many opportunities for learning outside the classroom, within our local community, Derby City and further afield.

We aim to inspire high aspirations for our children’s future by developing enquiry, creativity, teamwork and resilience. We talk to children about engaging fully in their learning, taking pride in working hard and celebrating when reaching their goals. Our curriculum drivers are ‘Talk about it, Try it, Do it!’

We promote active healthy lifestyles, British Values and encourage children to make a positive contribution to their community. As such we are proud to have been awarded the Healthy Schools Mark, Eco Bronze Award, East Midlands in Bloom Silver Gilt Award and most recently identified as a ‘What Works Well’ flagship school for the Children’s Food Trust.

If you have visited our school you will know that together children, staff, parents/carers and governors create a warm, happy, vibrant and welcoming place to learn with high expectations. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to visit Ridgeway you are welcome to by appointment.

Thank you for visiting our website.

Miss C. Wildgoose
Headteacher

Ofsted's Parent View

Parents and carers can give Ofsted their views of our school at any time of the year using an online questionnaire called Parent View. Your views are really important in helping inspectors form a judgement about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved upon.

Please register by clicking on the logo below and once your login has been activated, it will only take a few minutes to complete.

If you do not have a computer or an email address and you would like to access Parent View, or if you would like help then please do get in touch with us..

If you require a paper copy of any information contained on the website then this will be provided free of charge on a request basis from the School Office.
