learning, living, loving and laughing

Our Ethos

 

We are proud to be a Church School. Christian Values underpin everything we do at Ridgewell. We believe that  Love is the greatest Value of all; that this leads to Respect, Trust and Forgiveness.

Matthew 22:36-39

'Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?'

Jesus replied. ' Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: :Love your neighbour as yourself.'

We recognise that children are individuals with different abilities and needs. We aim to ensure that every child  achieves their full potential. We value the partnership with parents and believe that by working together every child can become a successful learner. Our curriculum is carefully planed to ensure children have access to a wide range of experiences and learning opportunities. We believe in life long learning and plan to teach each child skills that contribute towards a 'toolkit' for life. We understand that education is a journey and that learning doesn't just happen inside the classroom. Our Outdoor Learning and Forest School curriculum enriches the experiences we offer at Ridgewell. We are a small school where every child is known to every adult. To quote our school Prayer: 'Many hearts make a school'.
