Welcome to Ridgewell C of E Primary School

Part of the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Schools Trust

We are very proud of our small school, many visitors comment on the

good feelings they get as they look around. As a Church school we

believe strongly in Christian Values; Love- underpinned, by Trust,

Respect and Forgiveness. We regularly welcome members of the

local clergy into our school, attend family services and celebrate

special occasions in the Church of St Laurence which is right next


Our pupils consider themselves to be part of the ‘Ridgewell Family’,

where everybody knows everyone else. Behaviour in our school is

very good and the children clearly care for one another. Little Stars

Pre-school functions on our site within our Early Years Unit. From 3

years old children are welcomed into our school. Our results at the

end of KS2 are consistently higher than national averages.

We strongly value the partnership between home and school. We

recognise that this support from home is vital for our children to

achieve good results. Together we can ensure that all children

achieve their full potential. We recognise that a child needs qualities

and skills that cannot only be taught in a classroom. Our Forest

school ethos is an integral part of our curriculum. Children are

encouraged to be outside learning new skills, strengthening resilience

and becoming familiar with the environment. At Ridgewell everyone

has a pair of wellies!

We encourage our future citizens to become involved with the local

community through participating in the village fete each summer and

taking part in the annual tidying up of the village. We join with

villagers to remember local soldiers on November 11th each year at

the war memorial on The Green. Our School Council has an active

role in our school raising money for charities both global and closer to


We actively seek awards through enhanced provision and recently

achieved Essex Healthy Schools status. We recognise

that good health for life encompasses fitness, diet and emotional

wellbeing. We are delighted to have won an Active Essex KS1 award

and we have also received a Gold Award for our commitment to the

development of sport from the School Games programme.

We have strong links with local secondary schools

and participate in local sports tournaments and events. We

encourage our children to join our after school clubs, they are very

well attended and cater for a variety of children’s interests.
