School Description

Ridgewood provides for students with a very wide range of special educational needs. All students attending the school have a statement of special educational needs indicating profound and complex needs, severe and moderate learning difficulties or autistic spectrum conditions. Many students have additional physical or medical needs. Students can join the school at any age but most enter at the usual transfer age of 11. Almost half of the school’s students are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding); this is significantly above the national average. There are almost equal numbers of boys and girls in the school and most students are of White British heritage. Ridgewood is co-located with Sir John Thursby Community College, a secondary mainstream school. A small number of students experience activities in the co-located school. The number of students in the school’s provision for those over the age of 16, known as Further Education (FE) in the school, has risen since the previous inspection. The school has achieved Healthy School status, the Leading Parent Partnership Award, Investors in People and was awarded Sports School of the Year in 2011 for Lancashire.
