Ingoldsby Academy

Founded in 1877, Ingoldsby is a mixed Primary School, for children from 4 to 11 years old with a nursery facility on site at the school, taking children from their third birthday.

Parent Information

Communication between parents and school is integral to any child's learning.

We view education as a partnership between parents, pupils and the school.

There are several ways in which we seek to maintain contact between school and home. Please don't hesitate to contact us should you not find the information you are looking for.

  • A written report is provided towards the end of each Summer Term.
  • In addition, we hold consultation evenings during each term.
  • A regular newsletter is sent out, updating school events and sharing work.
  • The school’s website is also a valuable source of information for parents and children alike.
  • We also ask for parent's / carer's email addresses, so that communications can be sent electronically, in order to minimise paperwork being sent home.


Packed lunch guidance


We are very fortunate at Ingoldsby to have a thriving PTFA that has been an integral part of the school community for many years.

Its stated aims are:

  • To support the education of the children via fundraising and other activities
  • To foster more extended relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the school.

Over the years we have raised a significant amount of funds which has been put towards a variety of vital purchases such as new books, trim trail, extra-curricular activities and swimming lessons.

If you are interested in supporting the PTFA as a parent, please speak to us in the school office so that we can direct you to the PTFA committee.

If you would like to support the PTFA through sponsorship, for example by endorsing a particular event by adding your logo to our advertising, please contact


Wraparound Care

We have our own before and after school 'wraparound' club called Fabulous Foxes for those who need to drop off early and pick up after the usual school day.

Resources for Grief and loss

We have put together a box of resources for children who experience grief, loss or illness within a family.  The box can be borrowed by a family or individual books borrowed by parents.

Domestic Abuse 

Anyone forced to change their behaviour because they are frightened of their partner or ex-partner’s reaction is experiencing abuse.

Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, regardless of age, background, gender, religion, sexuality or ethnicity. Domestic abuse is never the fault of the person who is experiencing it. Domestic abuse is a crime.

If you think you, or someone you know might be experiencing domestic abuse, we may be able to help. Please approach a member of the safeguarding team in confidence, or click on one of the images below to access help or advice.
