We warmly welcome you to North Ridge Community School and hope you find the information on this website a useful introduction to our school. We intend that the time your child spends with us will be happy and valuable. At North Ridge we aim to provide the very highest standards of education to enable our children and young adults to reach their full potential.
Our School Ethos & Values
North Ridge is a community day special school for 119 pupils aged 3-19 years with severe learning difficulties with some pupils having additional needs. Our new school opened in September 2008, as part of the restructuring of special schools in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. The new building opened to pupils in January 2009 and offers a wide range of specialist learning areas and outdoor play areas. All the staff have high expectations of the children and themselves, and work in partnership to ensure each child becomes a confident, talented learner.
Hold my hand and walk with me.
We must break the back of social inequity;
We must empower every individual with a disability
To live with dignity in an inclusive society.
