Term Dates and the School Day

We believe clear, effective, two-way communication between home and school is a great way to support your child's learning in their early school years. You are welcome to contact the school office to make an appointment to talk with your class teacher or send them a message through ClassDojo.

Attendance Matters

We expect children to be in school on time every day, ready to learn. Please see our Attendance and Punctuality Policy on this website. We use a traffic light system to visually represent attendance rates across the Federation and regularly monitor and report on attendance.

Collective worship

An act of Collective Worship is held in each school each day led by a member of school staff. Assemblies often include visitors to the school or are themed, eg Values assembly, Church family, Celebration Assembly, etc. NB: In accordance with Covid-19 risk assessment, visitors are not currently coming in to our schools.


We use the communication apps ClassDojo and ParentHub to help parents, carers and other family keep in touch with our busy schools. Download the ParentHub app from your app store and use the handle @WirksworthInfants or @WirksworthCofE. 

We use ParentHub text service and RMIntegris to send emails directly to your child's main carer. Both are authorised by DCC Audit Services and used widely throughout Derbyshire schools.

We produce a regular newsletter, packed with important notices and dates to enable you to plan for events coming up. We try and group all our paper information so it goes home on the same day, but please check book bags each night to be sure you don't miss anything. 

Please contact school if you need another copy.
