Ripley Primary School is a Nut Free School


Ripley Endowed School

WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!  Our aim is to provide a nurturing and welcoming environment to enable every child to fulfil their potential in every aspect of their school life. We believe that the partnership between home and school is very important and continually strive to develop this link.

In the most recent Ofsted Inspection (2017) the Inspector commented, "Pupils mix harmoniously and are settled and happy in this nurturing village school”.  The Inspector also reported, “Pupils enjoy their learning, and show positive attitudes to school.  They say they especially like mathematics, which makes them think hard”.

As a Church of England School we undergo a regular inspection called the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS). In the report following our last inspection during 2016 the inspector said ‘The school’s distinctive Christian character is clearly evident in all areas and aspects of school life. In 2016 pupils reached above average standards in English and mathematics. All pupils make good or better progress in personal development. They learn how to care for everyone, in the local and wider community regardless of age or need. Parents appreciate the impact that the teaching of Christian values of forgiveness and humility have upon the relationships they observe and experience between all members of the school community. As a result, pupils develop a love for learning and take great pride in the presentation of their work in this supportive and welcoming environment. ‘

This is our school.
Let peace dwell here,
Let it be full of contentment,
Let love abide here,
Love of one another,
Love of humankind,
Love of life itself,
And love of God.
Let us remember
That as many hands build a house
So, many hearts make a school. Amen.
