Welcome from Mrs Robson
Ribby with Wrea Endowed Church of England Primary School is located at the heart of the village, adjacent to the Green, the Church (St. Nicholas) and the Pub (The Grapes). We are a small school with 152 pupils. About half of our pupils are from the local community and the remainder travel from further afield, including Warton, Kirkham, Blackpool, Preston and Lytham.
We believe that pupils learn best if they are happy and enjoy their work. For that reason we provide an enriched Curriculum. Pupils have the opportunity to develop their interests and skills in both National Curriculum subjects and many other activities. Whatever the ability of the child, they are encouraged to fulfil their full potential.
Ofsted,in 2014, have judged us as OUTSTANDING in all areas: Leadership and management, Behaviour and Safety of pupils, Quality of teaching, Achievement of pupils and Early Years Foundation Stage. We have also been judged as EXCELLENT on our most recent SIAMS inspection ,2019, (National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools Report).
We are proud of the fact that pupils' behaviour is outstanding and that pupils show a desire to do well in all they do, whether lessons or being a JLT or buddy, being a prefect or doing a performance for the community.
The Christian faith underpins all we do at Ribby with Wrea and we enjoy very good links with the church and community. Each Thursday the whole school visits church for a service led by Reverend Philip and pupils often participate in Sunday family worship. Pupils are involved in many village events such as singing at the switch on of the Christmas lights, performances for the community and Field day on the Village Green. We also have developing links with communities from further afield, including sponsoring a boy in a project in the slums of Chennai and supporting the Bethany Project in Tanzania.
Having visited the web-site, if you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact me and I would be delighted to show you the school in action.
