Welcome from the Principal
On behalf of the whole Ridgeway Farm CE Academy family, I am very proud to welcome you to our brand new primary school. We opened in September 2016 with 4 classes from Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) through to Year 6 and we really are a school community growing and developing together.
As an academy within the Diocese of Bristol Academies Trust, Ridgeway Farm’s vision and values will grow from its Christian ethos, creating a positive and inclusive atmosphere where children of different faiths or none can thrive.
Our children will learn, develop and practise the skills and values that they will need to succeed in, and beyond, the school environment. We want our children to get excited about school and feel completely safe within our care.
We are also very lucky to have a partner school - Lydiard Millicent CE Primary. The two schools work closely together and are run by a shared senior leadership team and Local Board. The two sites are quite close to each other and children, parents and staff will be able to take full advantage of the endless possibilities that such collaboration presents.
I think our academy is a very special place to be – but you don’t have to take my word for it. You are warmly encouraged to come and pay us a visit.
After seeing see our fabulous new equipment and resources – all carefully chosen for our school – and after paying a visit to the hideaway in our library and our Sensory Room, you won’t want to leave!
I look forward to welcoming you to our Ridgeway Farm family very soon.
Mrs C Luce
