We have around 280 children on the roll and an enthusiastic staff who are all committed to making each child reach their full potential.
We are very pleased to have signed up to the Deaf Friendly Schools Pledge, supporting The National Deaf Children's Society. We are endeavouring to provide a happy and caring environment for children with hearing difficulties and foster postive attitudes towards deafness.

Shaw Ridge School is structured so that we work in teams. Key stage one and the Foundation Stage function as a team in itself whilst key stage two consists of two teams. We have three parallel Y 5/6 classes (units 1a, 1b and 2a), three parallel Y3/4 classes (units 2b, 6, and 3a), two Y1/2 classes (units 5a and 5b) , a Y1/ Reception class (unit 3b) and a pure Reception class (unit 4).
The children are taught in accordance with the National Curriculum continuing to spend the majority of their time on the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Religious Education, and Information and Communication Technology. This is supplemented by the foundation subjects of History, Geography, Art, P.E., Design Technology, Personal Social & Health Education and Music.
