Welcome To North Ridge Community School

I am delighted to welcome you to our school website.  Here at North Ridge Community School the children are at the heart of all we do and we strongly believe it is our responsibility to provide a place where everyone feels welcome, secure and highly valued and promote this through our SHINE Values:


The education we provide is personalised and inclusive of everyone.

Our unique North Ridge Curriculum frequently provides innovative opportunities and inspiring experiences, and encourages our children to be learners. This is underpinned by both the Foundation Curriculum and the National Curriculum including wider opportunities such as Forest School and Duke of Edinburgh.

We also view it as our responsibility to work in partnership with parents to ensure our children and young people develop skills for life. We are here to ensure that each and every one of our pupils have the best opportunities to flourish through personalised learning.

I am very proud of North Ridge Community School and to be working with wonderful children, young people, their parents and carers and a dedicated team of incredibly committed and hardworking professionals who all work relentlessly hard to attain the best possible outcomes for all our children and young people.

Mr J Hodgson, Parent

I’m so glad we chose North Ridge Community School for my two sons. Every single member of staff that has worked with the boys from the moment they are picked up, to the time they come home, are dedicated professionals that are aware of their individual needs and have therefore enabled both boys to progress their learning in a comfortable, caring and positive environment.

The open days that are available for our family to attend provide great opportunities to chat informally about the boys progress and to see them so happy in their settings.

Ms G Dunn, Parent

It was wonderful to see part of Riley’s day with Riley and everyone else at the Sun Class ‘Stay & Play’ session.

It was great to see, great staff. I am one happy Mummy.
