 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.  



Ridgeway School Lottery


Welcome to  Ridgeway Infant School lottery. This lottery has been set up  by  the Friends Of Ridgeway  (FORS) specifically to raise money and make a difference for our children! 


It's a fantastic way to bring parents, carers, teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our school, and at the same time give something back.


We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children - we aim to provide extra resources for the children and improve the school environment Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!" 


Tamara Dale – Acting Headteacher



A ticket costs £1 per week and all funds raised go directly to our school.


Each ticket will also enter you in TWO draws:


1.    A jackpot prize draw for £25,000.00.


2.    A local draw with a guaranteed prize for one of the supporters of our school. The size of the prize will depend on the number of tickets bought for the school that week.


The lottery is a fun and effective way to raise money to improve our school. But we need your help to make the lottery the best it can be, so please support the lottery today - and who knows maybe you'll be the next £25,000 winner!



 Good luck to all who enter.
