Who's Who

The management of the school is led by Head Teacher,  Andrew Munday and Deputy Head Teacher,  Helen Roy.


The School Business Manager is Joyce Webb. The office staff are: Alison Page and Jane Allen


Caterlink staff are currently in charge of our school kitchen and lunchtime play time, supported by a team of midday assistants.


Specialist Resources and Support




Working alongside the teaching and child care staff is a group of other professionals whose input is vital for the development of our pupils.  These professionals include:  physiotherapists, occupational therapists (OTs), school nurses, Speech and Language Therapist (SaLT) and assistant, and music therapist.


Each specialist works in close co-operation with parents and the rest of the team, in order to ensure continuity of management, both at home and school.

Specialist rooms are provided for all these Health Authority services.  Each acts as part of a multidisciplinary team with teachers and child care staff and other visiting professionals to provide individual programmes and initiate group or class-based activities.

The Nurses


The Nurses are responsible for the health needs of all pupils at Ridgeway.  The nurse is a link between home, school and the health services.

Within the school team, the nurse offers personal counselling and support to pupils and their families, whilst encouraging pupils to consider their health and independence needs in relation to their disabilities and daily living.


Speech and Language Therapy


The Speech and Language therapist and assistant have a special therapy room but also work within the classrooms with selected groups or individual children.  Many of the pupils in school have communication difficulties and they are offered a variety of high-tech (communication or digital talkers) or low-tech (communication books) as appropriate to their level of need.  The SaLT team work closely with class staff to enable therapy to continue during lessons and activities, and not just in therapy sessions.
