Getting back to normal after lockdown and the Coronavirus pandemic at Ridgeway is something we are making a top priority for our students and will continue to work with parents to make sure we are getting it right and doing our best to maintain a Covid safe environment for our pupils, with as little further distraction as possible.

We are carefully and meticulously following the government guidelines and will keep in touch with all parents and carers to ensure we can keep everybody as safe as possible during this time.
