Ridgeway Primary Academy


If you are considering a place at Ridgeway Primary Academy for your child, you are most welcome to come and look around and speak to the Head of School/Executive Headteacher. Please contact the office to make an appointment.

The Local Authority (Leicestershire County Council) control admissions. An application for a place in a primary school must be made to the Local Authority where you live. For example, if you live in Northamptonshire, you must complete the Northamptonshire application form for primary school places, even if you intend to move to Leicestershire. If you would like to apply for a place in our school and you live in Leicestershire, the first step is to fill in a Leicestershire schools admission application form. An easy way to apply is online at

At Ridgeway Primary Academy children start school in the September of the academic year in which they have their fifth birthday. Children are invited to spend two afternoons in the Early Years Foundation Stage class before they start.

Our planned admission number for first time admissions (to start school in Reception) is 45 pupils per year group. For admissions during the 2019/20 school year we will be following the Leicestershire County Council admissions policy. From 2020/21 onwards we will follow the Learn-AT admissions policy. Copies of all relevant policies are below.
