Welcome to the Ridgeway Community School Website.
The Ridgeway Community School is committed to safeguarding and has robust child protection and whistle blowing practices and policies.
Governors have investigated the potential benefits of conversion to Academy status. Currently they have decided to remain as a Local Authority maintained school, but keep this option under continued review.
The Ridgeway is a school for children between the ages of 2 and 19 with severe and complex learning difficulties with an additional expertise and provision for pupils with an additional diagnosis for Autism. At the core of our work are high expectations.
Our Ethos is to provide personalised education with approaches and strategies founded on research and to be active in pursuing and undertaking research and enquiring ourselves. This is evident in our designation as a Teaching School and National Support school.
Our Teaching School, Innovation Teaching School, is an alliance of schools across all special and mainstream sectors. Please go to the teaching school link for further information.
With our focus on the individual collaboration with parents, professionals and ethos of high expectations, we are committed to working with you to provide the best provision for your child now and to promote the best opportunities for them in the future.
We very much welcome visits to the school and look forward to meeting you and hearing about your child.
