Welcome To Ridge Community Primary School
We are a small community primary school sited on the Ridge Estate in the heart of Lancaster.
Until the end of December our school is being led by Miss Jane Icely (Acting Headteacher) and Mrs Allison Hickson (our Associate Headteacher), who are supported by our wonderful school staff. In January Miss Claire Bright will take over as our new Headteacher.
We have seven classes for Reception to Year 6, with about 20 to 30 children in each class.
The school is maintained by Lancashire County Council, and is managed by a Governing Body made up of community, family, school, and Local Authority representatives.
We are really proud of the community that is our school, and we hope these pages will show you why!

On Friday 14th December we will be supporting Save the Children’s annual national Christmas Jumper Day, when everyone is invited to come to school in their favourite Christmas jumper and to consider making a donation to the charity.
Lots of charity shops in the town centre are selling pre-loved Christmas jumpers at the moment, but no-one has to buy anything new – see how creative you can be about decorating your old jumper with some of last year’s tinsel and baubles!
Information about the work that Save The Children does is available on their website here: https://christmasjumperday.org/how-you-help/

Donations of chocolate, selection boxes and other raffle prizes are warmly welcomed.
Families attending are encouraged to walk or to car-share where possible, in order to minimise the impact of traffic on our neighbours.

Parking outside school and in Rising Stars’ carpark:
Please can we again request that families who are dropping children off at school drive and park with consideration for other families, and for our neighbours.
We appreciate that the roads do get very busy at school times, but it is very important that families do not park on double yellows or zig-zag lines outside school.
If there are spaces after school finishes (after 3.15pm), families are welcome to park in the school carpark for things like parents’ evenings and collecting from after-school clubs.
Rising Stars Nursery have also asked us to remind school families to please not park in the Firbank Centre carpark, as this can make it difficult for nursery families who are trying to drop off their babies and toddlers.
We thank you all for your support and concern.
