Who We Are
Risley Lower Grammar is your local Church of England primary school that serves 130 children in five classes. Derbyshire County Council funds our school and is responsible for admissions. They plan to admit up to 19 children into our reception cohort each September. Our school has grown over the decades and now most children come from outside our normal catchment area (the village of Risley). The majority of our children are now from Sandiacre; a quarter are from Risley and the remaining families are from a wide surrounding area (such as Stanton by Dale, Long Eaton, Draycott, Breaston and Borrowash). If you are interested in coming to Risley School then please do call the office to arrange a visit, Mrs Walsh is your first point of contact. The children's school day starts at 9 am (although children and parents are welcome at school from 8.45 am) and finishes at 3.30 pm. Infants go into school at 8.55am and come out at 3.25pm. We are not able to offer before or after school care on site but there are many commercial providers who drop off and pick up from the school. Our Ofsted reports are on the Ofsted page (tab above) and our SIAMs report is on the tab on the left. Below is a link to our school prospectus. Our church report is on the church links page.
