School Description

Pupils at Ridgeway have very particular complex learning, physical or medical needs. Staff work hard to make sure these needs do not stop the pupils from learning and having fun. The relationships between staff and pupils are based on mutual respect and trust. Therapists and staff work closely together to ensure that pupils’ sensory and care needs are met. The way in which pupils are treated with dignity and respect is impressive. Teachers expect the pupils to work hard. They encourage pupils to be as independent as possible, but also make sure they are safe. Staff provide a perfect balance between nurture, support and challenge. This helps pupils to do their very best. Pupils told us that they enjoyed their lessons because teachers make them interesting. They particularly like the clubs they can choose to go to at lunchtimes and on Friday afternoons. Pupils’ behaviour is a strength of the school. Pupils and staff show genuine kindness towards each other. Pupils told us that bullying doesn’t happen. Parents and carers and staff agree with them. Parents are positive about the school. One parent told the inspectors, ‘The whole school look out for each other. It is an absolute pleasure to be part of it.’ What does the school do well and what does it need to do better? Governors and leaders want Ridgeway to successfully prepare pupils for the next stage in their education. They work hard to ensure that all pupils are as independent as possible, are confident to make choices and can communicate their needs. Since his appointment, the headteacher and leaders have been working hard to improve the curriculum. They want it to be relevant and meaningful to all pupils.
