On 22nd May we held a 'Dance Wiggle' in aid of Happy Days, a charity which has given us lots of money in the past and continues to fund many activities for us.

On Friday 8th May we were entertained by the M and M theatre group. They performed Oliver Twist for us, Thank you to the Happy Days Charity for paying for the show.

Today has been Red Nose Day. Pupils travelled around the school taking part in many different activities. In Blue Class we were decorating biscuits with funny faces, and pinning red noses onto Mr Allard.

We all enjoyed having our pictures taken in the Red Nose photo booth.

Our Christmas concert was fantastic this year. The children and staff really enjoyed it.

Some girls from Bedford Girls School put on a concert for us. They played instruments, sung and danced. We are developing our links with the school. The girls are also undertaking fundraising activities in aid of Ridgeway. We would like to thank Bedford Girls School for giving us a lovely concert and for their fundraising support.

Music therapist Bob Heath came to school. He helped us to make a 40th Birthday song for school.

It was our privilege last week to be visited once again by the fantastic Armonico musicians. Maggy, Anne and Patrick carried out workshops with our Secondary aged pupils for three days. They produced a fantastic  performance for the whole school and visitors to share.

Thank you very much for a very enjoyable and productive time. We are already looking forward to your next visit.


On Thursday 16th October Miss Turner organised for some owls from the English Falconry Centre in Wilstead to come to visit school. 

They flew around the hall and onto our arms. The children had a fantastic time and learned a lot.
