Welcome to Ribbleton Avenue Infant School

We are delighted to share the outcome of our latest OFSTED inspection with you.  The report highlights the many exemplorary aspects of school life and celebrates the high standard and professionalism of all staff and governors.  We are very proud of our report and we will work hard to continue to improve attendance, aiming at the 96% or better target set nationally for school pupils to achieve.

A Welcome from the Head Teacher



It is a privilege to write to you to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Ribbleton Avenue Infant School. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school’s website and tell you a little bit about who we are and what we do.

Ribbleton Avenue Infant School is a diverse community which provides a caring, broad and balanced curriculum for children from Nursery to Year 2.  Our talented and committed staff team all aim to make our school a happy, enjoyable place in which children flourish. They also put in lots of extra effort to facilitate special theme weeks throughout the year, not to mention the plays and assemblies which provide lots of motivation for the children and entertainment for their parents. The Governors work hard to ensure that the best use is made of our resources and they make a valuable contribution to the success of the school.

We are a positive and welcoming school which believes strongly that parents, carers and families are a very important part of a child’s learning and we work closely with them. Visitors are always welcome into our school and many comment on the feeling of warmth and care.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.

Best Wishes

Sarah Johnson

The Rededication of the Preston War Memorial


Miss Nickson, Miss Smith, Chloe and Zak were delighted to be invited to watch the Rededication of the Preston War Memorial at the Market Square in Preston. It was an honour to see the men and women who help to protect our country honoured in such a way and we were very excited to see so many veteran service men who had so many medals to show us!  Our favourite bits were watching the big brass band welcome in the Lancaster Regiment into the square before the Sergent made the soldiers do a 'drill' with their special swords. Then we were treated at the end of the afternoon to a celebratory buffet where we all ate sandwiches and cake with all the other boys and girls from different schools; a super afternoon!
