_________________________ Celebrating Success
None of the pupils at Riverside Bridge School are entered for formal age-related testing although teacher assessment data is submitted to the DfE.
For more details on the national performance table, please click here.
However, our pupils are given many opportunities to achieve qualifications which have been designed to address the needs of learners with special educational needs and disabilities, whose attainment on entry is well below those expected of pupils of a similar age nationally. The qualifications we offered are closely linked to our Growth curriculum to ensure that all our pupils are given the same opportunities to access appropriate and relevant education to thrive and develop, with the ambition to lead a fulfilled, happy, rewarding and as far as possible independent life, integrated into the society they choose to leave in.
The Unit Award Scheme (UAS) is a unique recording of achievement scheme, rather than a qualification. It offers learners the opportunity to have their achievements formally recognised with a certificate each time a short unit of learning is successfully completed.
There are no limits on:
what can be accredited, as long as it is worthwhile and meaningful for the learner;
who can achieve, in terms of age or ability;
how long it takes to achieve or when this takes place;
how learning can be evidenced.
Flexibility is key with UAS, and their motto is ‘Achievement for All’. We encourage and support all our pupils to show what they can do, rather than what they can’t do.
Here is a breakdown per pathway of the units, which will be achieved in Summer Term 2022-2023:

Healthy Living and Fitness Award
Through this course, our pupils learn ways in which they can contribute to a healthy lifestyle and are encouraged to demonstrate activities which will improve their own lifestyle. They learn to become active contributors when working with others on group activities and to be able to review their own progress and skills development and how to identify and work towards goals appropriately. They are provided with the opportunities to develop decision making skills which will enable them to make appropriate choices in their own lives and to develop an understanding of the link between food and health. They are also able to acquire a knowledge and understanding of safety and hygiene when preparing, cooking and serving food.
