Welcome to Ridgeway Academy

Welcome

Hello welcome to our new website!

Our Vision

Our vision is that ‘Everybody can Achieve’ because we:

Have Respect for:

  • learning and achievement;
  • each other, valuing different views, beliefs and cultures;
  • our community, supporting activities and presenting a positive image of the school;
  • the environment, keeping it clean and tidy and fit for learning;
  • the school rules and regulations.

Take Responsibility for:

  • making significant progress and being a successful learner;
  • setting high standards of behaviour, conduct, appearance and attitude;
  • being effective independent learners and leaders, taking initiative and supporting others;
  • meeting the challenges of the future and being confident in all that we do;
  • making a positive contribution to society.

Develop Relationships which:

  • are strong between each other, in and out of school;
  • allow us to lead safe and healthy lives and look after the well-being of each other;
  • help us think creatively and rationally and be enthusiastic about learning;
  • help us know and value other people.

We will develop every student’s capacity to learn so that they become increasingly independent as they progress through the school.  The strength of positive relationships between students and staff allows everyone to achieve in their learning.
