The Head of Key Stage and SENCO will liaise closely with feeder school staff to ensure that all appropriate information is exchanged so that the transfer to Ridgeway Secondary School is smooth and enjoyable. Parents of Year 4, 7 and 9 students will have opportunities throughout the year to visit the school and meet the staff. Year 4, 7 and 9 students will be visited in their schools and will have several opportunities to become acquainted with Ridgeway Secondary School before they begin with us.

All students will be allocated to a tutor group and the tutor will be the first point of contact for parents. Morning registers will be taken in tutor groups and tutors will take day-to-day responsibility for the general welfare and care of each student.

Heads of Key Stage and our Pastoral Leader are supported by a member of the Leadership Team. The Heads of Key Stage work closely with students, parents and outside agencies to ensure that all students receive excellent care, support and guidance. Parents can also access information relating to their child’s academic and pastoral progress via our online school systems.
