Welcome to Gayton Junior School

We are currently closed to all children apart from those of key workers until further notice. If you are a key worker and require provision for your child during the school closures because they cannot be cared for safely at home, please contact me by email (head@gaytonj.derby.sch.uk).

Please visit our School Closure pages to find links to activities to do at home with your child. Click here to access this week’s Learning Logs. You can also access Mathletics and Reading Eggs – please do not come to school to change reading books – it is vitally important that we keep ourselves safe at this time.

We are now able to process vouchers for £15 each week for children who are eligible for Free School Meals. They are funded by the government and provided by Edenred. Please click here to read the DfE Privacy Notice for more information about data that is shared for this reason and click here for the Edenred Frequently Asked Questions. If your circumstances have changed since schools have been closed, and you think you may now be eligible for Free School Meals, please contact the school and we will make an application on your behalf.

Mrs J Hill (Headteacher)
