We feel passionately that to enable our children to reach their optimum potential, we need to work harmoniously as school and parents/carers. We appreciate what a difficult job it is to be a parent and aim to support you as best as possible in order to support your child and their learning experiences during their time with us.
At The Ridge, we are lucky to have a parent link worker:
Mrs Katie Davis
If you feel that you or your family would benefit from some time or support, please contact the school office and ask about our parent link worker to book an appropriate time.
