Welcome To Ridge Community Primary School
We are a small community primary school sited on the Ridge Estate in the heart of Lancaster.
Claire Bright, Headteacher
Our school is led by Miss Claire Bright (Headteacher) who took up post in January 2019, and who is supported by our wonderful school staff.
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!

The club runs from 8.00am, and children then walk up to school in a ‘walking bus’. The club is just 20p per day, or £1.00 per week, per child.
Contact Lisa or Donna on 01524 389 008, or pop into the centre, for more information.

18.01.2019 - The Reception children were very happy to see the parents come to their classroom this week!
To those that do not know, Stay and Play is the chance for parents to get to come to school and take part in the learning activities, and for the children to show you what they have learned so far. Its also an opportunity for you to talk with the teachers to learn how well your child is doing and to raise any concerns you may have.
This will continue to take place every Friday morning straight after drop-off time. We hope to see as many of you drop by next week!

It’s winter virus season, and we’d like to remind families about what to do about school when children are poorly…
If children do get ill, they are often still OK to come to school – such as with a mild cough or cold. If children need Calpol families can give them a dose before school, and staff can call home if they need another dose during the day. If necessary, families can complete a form to give permission for school staff to administer Calpol to children.
Children who are really ill may need to be kept at home, but families need to ring and let school know where they are, every day.
Children who have an upset tummy (vomiting or diarrhoea) should stay away from school for 48 hours from the last time they are ill, to stop the germs spreading.
If your child becomes ill while at school we will attempt to contact you straight away - we do not have the facilities to care for a really poorly child and will therefore contact you to enable your child to be taken home.
It is really important that families ensure that school has contact telephone numbers for family and alternative adults who are able to collect your child in the event of an emergency - if you think your number may be out-of-date please do pop into the office to give us the new details.
