Parent Workshops

Understanding the Ridgeway Ethos and Approach

At Ridgeway, we offer a programme of workshops, across the year, to help improve parents' understanding of our approach and why we feel it has such a positive impact on our children.  Some workshops will be about our general approach to teaching and learning, while others will offer an insight into specifc curriculum subjects or year group learning.  We aim to help parents understand the rationale for our approach, whikle also offering practical advice for ways they can support their children at home.


Parent Workshops Programme 2019-2020

The programme of workshops for 2019-2020 has been updated with new workshops, so we encourage you to review the Spring term workshop planner to see if there is anything you might find interesting or useful.  Dates have been set in advance and the planner contains some detail about the content of each workshop, so you can make an informed choice about what to attend.


Places at workshops should be booked by emailing:

Ridgeway Digest

As part of our ongoing efforts to improve parents' understanding of, and appreciation for, our ethos and approach, we have created a new publication.  Each Digest will cover one particular topic in-depth, and explain the rationale for our approach, including any underlying research (where applicable).  We aim to make the Digests well researched with any relevant facts and verifiable evidence, while also interesting, engaging and accessible.
