Our Achievements

We strive for high attainment and excellent progress for all our children at each key stage.  We believe this is achieved by high quality teaching, exciting learning opportunities and high expectations of all learners. 

Click on the link to see a summary of our KS2 outcomes for 2019.  These results are currently provisional.  The validated outcomes are published by the DfE and can be found by looking at the DfE Performance Tables.  Our results for 2019 can be found in the 2019 Performance Tables.  

Please note: Due to the cancellation of the 2020 SATs and Phonics check, no schools have results for the 2019-2020 academic year.  Our most recent results, for the 2018-2019 academic year, are shown via the links above.


In our last Ofsted inspection the school was rated as Good.  Click here to read our latest Ofsted Report.


We believe that test results are only one indicator of a school's educational success.  We are equally proud of our achievements in Technology, Art, Music, Drama, Dance and P.E.  Each year we compete in the Croydon Netball and Football Leagues, and Swimming and Athletics competitions to allow children to access competitive sporting activities. The children also enjoy taking part in the KS1 and KS2 Dance Festival at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. 



Every year our school engages in fundraising to support charitable organisations, both locally and further afield.  Details of recent fundraising efforts are below:


  • In Spring 2018, a number of Ridgeway staff engaged in fundraising for The Royal Marsden.  So far, they have raised £4009.44.
  • In Autumn 2018, the Harvest collection consisted of families donating tins and packets of food which were taken to Croydon Refugee Day Centre.
  • Our Poppy Appeal raised £553.15 for the Royal British Legion.
    • In summer 2017, a member of staff travelled to Uganda, to support a charity called ‘Children of Masindi’, whose aim is to make a difference to young people’s lives, especially those with disabilities. They worked alongside the teaching staff in Uganda to share good practices from Ridgeway, as well as raised money to help them provide vocational training for disabled young people, allowing them to have a skill when they leave school.  By raising £900 we were able to support these causes by providing the following items, some of which are lifesaving:
      • Mosquito nets for the children who board to prevent them from catching malaria.
      • 50 packets of malaria treatment medication.
      • A solar battery for the boarding school, to enable them to have lights in the corridor.
      • Beams and hooks for the children to hang their clothes.
      • To repair the guttering of the boarding house, essential for collecting water for drinking and cooking.
      • 1 table and 6 benches for the boarding children.
  • In Spring 2017 we received an award from the NSPCC in acknowledgement of Ridgeway raising the most funds (£4,164) on their behalf out of all Croydon schools.
