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
