"If you have a big group of people who work together really well then you can help more of the world than if you work on your own...if you communicate...."
Developing a learning community in our school where everyone involved is a learner who can learn alongside and from each other is important for both adults and children at Ridgeway.
Children learn through a variety of approaches but at the heart of this is collaboration – the same for adults too. Children learn independently, in pairs or groups with a wide range of peers developing real collaboration skills. This is also modelled by staff that work in class, year group and subject teams to foster and develop a collaborative learning community. We are all learners.
