Welcome to Gayton Junior School

We have now reopened to all pupils. If you are a parent looking for information on the changes we have made within school in response to the COVID pandemic, please visit our COVID Information pages by clicking on the link above.

At Gayton, we believe that we offer all our children a safe and secure environment in which they can learn and reach their potential. Our staff are very well trained to deliver an exciting curriculum that will spark a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We pride ourselves in the care and support that we offer to both our children and their families while they are with us.
By working together to achieve academic, social and personal goals our children receive an education that supports the development of the whole child and not just their academic achievement. We value parents, families and the community as vital partners in helping us provide the best education possible.

This year, we have federated with Ridgeway Infant School, as the Blagreaves Federation. Both schools are maintaining the links created between the two schools, working more closely together and ensuring the smoothest possible transition for the children at the end of Year 2. This partnership will enable both schools to ensure that early skills taught at Ridgeway are built on at Gayton, allowing children to make the best possible progress across the curriculum. Please click here to visit Ridgeway’s website.

Please read through our website to find out more about us, or download our prospectus here. Then, if you have any questions or would like to visit to see us in action, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Mrs J Hill (Headteacher)
