About Ridgeway Primary School

We are delighted to welcome you to our nurturing school where children are at the heart of everything we do. From our strategic decision-making through to teaching and learning, we strive to fulfil our ethos of nurturing every child for lifelong success.

At Ridgeway, staff prioritise getting to know each individual child and building strong relationships with every family, so that children are fully included and well-supported both academically and pastorally. We offer a rich and deep curriculum, which develops a wide range of skills, knowledge and interests in our children and gives them the tools needed to be happy and successful in life.

As a creative community, we often do things a little differently, but always with good reason. We utilise research, experience and the ideas of our children and wider community to continuously reflect on and develop our practice. Our children develop high expectations of themselves and become responsible citizens who have respect for others. A continuous focus on developing confidence and independence means that children leave Ridgeway ready to face the challenges that life brings.
