Ridgeway Primary School and Nursery attracts many visitors to learn more about our creative curriculum, approaches to teaching for learning, leadership and managment, assessment for learning and our excellent early years provision.  Here is some feedback from some of our visitors to Ridgeway:


"The visits were inspiring and incredibly useful. Our teachers are still 'buzzing' with excitement about the possibilities within the curriculum.  As a whole school we are now reviewing the way we plan for learning in the classroom and the way we manage groups which is a direct result of the visits to Ridgeway Primary School and Nursery.  Please thank all your staff for their superb support and thank you especially for your help in motivating change in the school."


Deputy Head from a Surrey School


“Participants consistently rate the visit to Ridgeway Primary School and Nursery highly and draw on the school’s curriculum, leadership structure and the approaches demonstrated with regard to developing children’s independence.


This year participants were struck by the lengths the school goes to support and overcome barriers for children who face challenges in learning. 


In a time where many schools have narrowed their curriculum Ridgeway has challenged our potential future leaders to keep the curriculum broad and balanced, with children's needs at the core."


Louize Allen, Education Consultant leading 'Lambeth's Future Leaders Programme.'





"I just wanted to say a delayed thank you for setting up my visit to Ridgeway Primary School and Nursery. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in R's class; it was a really refreshing approach to teaching and great to see so much going on in one class. I'd be grateful if you could pass on my thanks to R for giving up her time to talk to me.  It's given me a lot of ideas for next year as well as a good idea ofour Head's vision for our school."
