Friends of Ridgeway School

May I take this opportunity to introduce you to the Friends of the Ridgeway School. We are a group of parents who meet regularly to support each other, share ideas, organise events and support the school.

We meet monthly, either for coffee, lunch or for a local walk. At our lunches we often have a guest speaker or planned activity. Throughout the year you will meet us at various events including the Christmas Fayre. 

We are always looking for help and new ideas. We have children of all ages and needs, they are all unique! One thing we share is that we are here in the Ridgeway School, where our children are able to learn at their own pace. The friends cover the cost of the Christmas panto, a Christmas present for every child and a Summer trip out for each class. We have also recently purchased some musical equipment for the school which has now been installed into the playground.  Every student in the school benefits from our fundraising and your contribution is very important. It can take time to settle into a new school, but we would love to welcome you to our meetings, coffee or lunches. Please come along, or contact the office or website for more details. 

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any ideas for speakers, events or any other suggestions. We'd love to hear from you!

Thank you and hope to see you soon,

Best wishes, Ann-Marie Funk, Chair & Secretary
