A message from our headteacher.

At Ripley infant School you are sure to receive a warm welcome from the staff, children, parents and governors.

The school’s motto of ‘Growing and Learning Together’ is reflected in the caring, supportive ethos where children are challenged to be the best that they can.

Each term we explore one of our core ASPIRE values; Achievement, Safe, Passion for Learning, Individuality, Resilience, Exploration. These values are reinforced through our curriculum. They are an important part of preparing and supporting our children for the next stage in their education and in becoming thoughtful, caring, valuable members of their community.

Our school is based on a developing effective relationships and working in partnership with parents, pupils and the whole school team. We are committed to working together to ensure that children have the best possible start to school life. Every member of the Ripley Infant School community has an important part to play in ensuring our success.

We look forward to you joining us!
