Welcome to Chellaston Infant School’s website

Have you been offered a school place?

We promise to be in touch soon!

As a school, taking 120 new pupils in September, we’ve quite a bit to sort out and organise.

First, we’ll be getting in touch with your child’s pre-school provider; they’ll help us to make our 4 new Reception class lists so that your little one knows someone else in their class. After this, you’ll receive a comprehensive induction pack from us with everything you could possibly need!

We’ll meet you (without your little one) at a parents meeting on Thursday 29th June and hope you can make it; our existing parents say this is an invaluable opportunity to come and see us and hear all about starting school. 

Your child will come for two visits on Wednesday 5th and 12th July OR Friday 7th and 14th July; we hope you’ll make sure these are free in your summer diaries too!

If, in the meantime, you’d like to read our most recent Ofsted report please click the link below:

Our school is a co-educational school for children aged from four to seven years and is maintained by Derby City Council.

The school was first opened in 1878 for the education of children of all ages. In January 1967 it became an infant school following the opening of Chellaston Junior School.

Chellaston Infant School is a successful school that prides itself on its commitment to providing all pupils with a high quality education, taking into account individual needs. Our most recent Ofsted Inspection noted that –“Pupils achieve well and monitoring arrangements for pupil progress are extensive. Pupils’ individual welfare arrangements are central to the work of the school and significant elements are outstanding.” We only achieve this through close partnership with parents and carers.

We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child’s time at our school is as positive, exciting and successful as it can be.

If you would like any more information about our school, please do not hesitate to contact us.
