Sports Clubs

Dear Parent/Carer                                                                                       

Next week (week beginning 20th April), our after school sports clubs will commence again. The clubs on offer are below. The summer term is very busy for sporting fixtures so many clubs will occur during lunchtimes. These clubs have been advertised in school and are on display in each classroom (and the school website).

If you have already completed the slip at the bottom of the page from last term then you do not have to complete it again. If you have not completed it before and your son/daughter would like to attend any clubs this half term, then please complete the slip and return it to me. Clubs may alter for a number of reasons and pupils will be informed at least 1 day before the club (we will always try and give as much notice at possible).

We encourage pupils and parents to communicate with each other on the morning of the club to ensure there is no confusion. Pupils will need to make sure they know there arrangements of returning home after a club. (If you are collecting your child from school then please use the school playground for parking to ease congestion). This term is extremely busy with fixtures, (hence the limited selection of clubs) pupils will be given a separate letter to inform both themselves and their parents.

Thank you for your support during the first term.

Yours Sincerely

Mr T Clarkson

Head of P.E.

New windows for Ridgeway!

double glazing

We are delighted to announce that the EFA have confirmed that we are successful in our bid for funding to double glaze the school. This is the second year that Ridgeway has secured capital funding to improve the learning environment for our pupils and staff with over £400,000 being invested in our buildings.

The work will start after the summer holidays and we will keep you posted on the progress!

Year 6 Camping

Dear Parent/Carer

Following the hard work and resilience of our Year 6 pupils in the build up to SATs, we are excited to invite your child to camp on our school field on the evening of Friday 15 May.  We have offered this for the last two years and our Year 6 pupils have thoroughly enjoyed an evening of fun and challenge at the end of a stressful period for them.

Pupils who are successful will need:

  • Tent (to be pitched with parental help between the hours of 6 and 8pm)
  • Pupils can share tents but no more than four per tent please.
  • Sleeping bag, warm clothes, change of clothes, wash kit.
  • A picnic style tea will be provided.
  • Children will need to be collected by 9.30am on Saturday 16 May.

Due to popular demand, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis because of staffing ratios.  Please complete the Reply Slip.  There will be a charge of £5 which will cover our food costs.

You will be informed if your child has been successful in securing a place.  There will be a brief meeting on Thursday 14 May at 3.30pm in the school hall.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely

MRS L TAIT

Parking will be made available on the school playground and arrangements will be the same as for the Year 5 Christmas Assembly.

We hope to see you there!
