Ofsted inspectors have labelled Ridge Primary School a good school following their inspection last month.
Over the past few years the school has faced some real challenges and everyone, including the children, families, staff, governors and volunteers, has worked hard to improve the children’s outcomes.
Inspectors say that:
*Pupils behave well and feel very safe in school. They are kind and respectful to each other and to staff. Most enjoy learning and are keen to come to school. Attendance is above average.
*Pupils make good progress because they are well taught. Work is carefully planned, varied and challenging. Activities engage the interest of all groups of pupils and enable them to achieve well.
*The curriculum successfully develops pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills, their spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness. Consequently, pupils are well prepared for their secondary education and for their future lives as citizens of modern Britain.
