Welcome to our site !

Crich C of E Infant School is a small village school, you will find us on Bowns Hill in Crich.  We are a voluntary controlled Church of England School.  We are a co-educational day school funded by the local authority.  The school was established in 1848.

We have 48 children on roll between the ages of 4 and 7 years.  The children are organised into two classes:

  • Early Years/Year 1 Unit (Acorns and Saplings) - Children aged 4-6 years
  • Year 2 (Oaks) - Children aged 6-7 years

We value excellent relationships with parents/carers.  Learning is a life-long experience and we value our partnership that we have with you in your child’s learning.  We have an open door policy and parents/carers are welcome into school at any time.  Many of our current parents/carers help with reading and classroom based activities.
