RIDGEWAY & GAYTON FEDERATION CONSULTATION
Ridgeway and Gayton schools have been working closely together since January 2019. Both schools have greatly benefited from this close partnership although this is currently only a temporary arrangement. To continue this beneficial partnership, discussions between the Governing Boards of the two schools have taken place and we are proposing a Federation which will formalise the partnership between the two schools.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the proposal document. The consultation period has now closed. The Governors of both schools will consider the responses before making a final decision. We will inform all stakeholders of the next steps as soon as possible.
School is closed to the majority of children until further notice.

In light of the current situation, we have shared the story below with our children to reduce any fears they may have about getting ill. We would encourage you to use the story with your child so that they start to understand more about the virus.
If you would like any support answering any questions your child may have, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mrs Dale or Mrs Harford-Smyth.

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.
