Riverside Bridge Pupil Premium 2017/18
Riverside Bridge is an inclusive school where every child is valued and supported to achieve as full and independent life as possible. We have always used a variety of teaching and support techniques with our pupils. We use The Sutton Trust’s Teaching and Learning Toolkit as the starting point for addressing the attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
All FSM or LAC children can work with any staff member at any one time. We emphasise that all staff develop their use of questioning, individualised instruction and effective feedback, as the Sutton Trust report these as highly effective strategies for narrowing attainment gaps. We also place great emphasis on all pupils participating in community and special events as this helps the children to integrate into the wider society.
After evaluating the impact of the 2016/17 funding we have decided to continue with the specialist speech and language therapy assistant as pupil speaking and listening outcomes were positive.
For this academic year we have also specifically targeted the following areas:
Personal Development and Behaviour, Independence Skills, Communication Skills, Cognition and Learning and Social Interaction.
This will be addressed through part-funding of additional support staff and classroom specific initiatives. We will also focus on promoting engagement in curricular activities, community-based learning as well as workshops, trips, and visits.
