Apply for a place in Reception for September


Is your child starting school in September? Trying to decide which school to apply to? You’ve come to the right place…


Ridgefield Primary is a vibrant community primary school tucked away in the Coleridge area of Cambridge. We are a small school where each of our children gets to discover their passions and be celebrated as individuals. We are a tight knit yet diverse community with a excellent pastoral care. We are well known in the area for teaching an innovative and creative curriculum with a strong emphasis on high achievement and a knack for getting our children fired up about learning.


Our Foundation Stage was well recommended by OFSTED, saying, “Through on-going and unobtrusive assessments in the Nursery and Reception classes, adults are able to plan and adapt activities to meet children’s needs and interests.“


Please explore our website and get in touch should you require any further information… and join the majority of parents who make Ridgefield their first choice!


Please get in touch for more information or arrange an informal visit.

The Parents’ School Preference Adviser has made a You Tube video summary available on the County Council website which covers the main points parents need to be aware of when making an application for a Reception place for next September.  This supplements the information on the Admissions Team page about applying for a primary school place.  Please be aware there is a deadline in January.  

Here are some photographs of the Foundation Stage outdoor environment.
