Our School Ethos & Values 

North Ridge is a community special school for pupils aged 3-19 years with severe learning difficulties and additional needs.

NRCS Vision 

Our aims

  • To prepare pupils well for each successive stage of their development and to benefit from those experiences, opportunities and responsibilities that help build maximum independence in adult life.
  • To provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced and also appropriate to the physical, emotional, developmental, social and spiritual needs of the individual.
  • To provide an environment that is safe yet stimulating, supportive and yet promotes independence and has strong community values whilst recognising the individual’s need for autonomy.    
  • To provide an education which discourages prejudice, discrimination and unequal opportunity based on such things as race, religion, class, sexuality or disability.
  • To work holistically with other children’s services, both within and outside the school, to benefit the whole child and their family.
