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. 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.

Mrs J Hill (Headteacher)
