Mr Bennett and Ms Grieve have met with Mr Patel, the Regional Schools Commissioner, today to discuss our move to secondary school status, these conversations will continue during our transition. Today was a positive meeting about the current achievements of our pupils and the continuation of this in the future.

Towards the end of June we are holding drop in sessions for pupils and parents currently in Year 5 & 6 to discuss the changes with us.

Parent Readers Programme

Parent Readers Programme

For any parents and guardians that want to be involved in the life of the school, we are looking to run a Parent Readers Programme from September 2015. The programme will involve you supporting and reading with small groups of children during the school day, between 8.25am and 3.00pm. If you can give some of your time, however big or small to help with our new reading programme, an expression of interest should be sent to the office and a member of the office team or I will get back to you. Please e-mail us on

Many thanks,

Miss A Rai

Do you have any spare masonry paint?


We are in the process of creating a mural on the outside of our Art Block. The children have painted the base coat and will be starting to put their pencil drawings onto the wall shortly.

After the Half Term holiday we would like to start painting their designs onto the wall but need some more coloured masonry paint to do so! Could you please have a look in your shed, garage or loft and see if you have any half used or unwanted external masonry paint in any colour (except white please) that you would like to donate to our cause. Just drop it into the school office at a time that suits you.

You can keep up to date with the mural progress on our website or by following our Twitter feed. You can even “like” us on Facebook as well now

Thank you for your support in advance.

Ridgeway and the Mural Painters

The mural begins…

The Art Wall Mural competitions got started on painting today (in between the showers!). Mrs Skinner gave them as hand as well! Coat one done, coat two tomorrow and then the drawing can begin.

Rather boring!

Just not quite tall enough! But coat one done.
