Welcome to Ridgeway Infant School

Our dedicated and enthusiastic team provide an environment that nurtures independence, fun and a desire to learn. Our school is uniquely situated in extensive natural grounds with a well established forest school 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 and our curriculum prioritises enquiry and investigation. We talk to children about engaging fully in each learning journey, taking pride in working hard and celebrating when reaching our goals. Our whole school values focus on teamwork, creativity, resilience, communication, independence and reflectiveness.

We promote active healthy lifestyles, British Values and encourage children to make a positive contribution to their community.

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.
