RAP stands for Riversides school Alternative Provision.
RAP mission statement:
Our mission is to ensure that our students can access education and that each child’s specific needs are met.
We believe that Every Student Matters.
We believe in meeting each child where they are in their own individual life and educational journeys and fully supporting them to have the confidence and motivation to take daily steps forward.
By placing trusting relationships at the heart of everything we do, we strive to provide a safe and engaging environment so that our students can enjoy coming to school and experience growing personally, socially and academically every day.
Matt – Teacher
Barry – Learning Mentor
Natasha – Learning Mentor
Each child’s provision is designed to meet their very specific needs with the main priority being school attendance and engagement achieved through personal, social and academic development.
Learning Outside the Classroom
Our mission is to provide our students with a rich array of experiences. RAP provides a whole range of opportunities to take learning outside of the classroom (LOtC), such as going on local visits to places of interest, weekly swimming lessons, nature trail walks, exploring the wonderful Worcestershire countryside, shopping for ingredients for cooking lessons, visits further afield such as the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham and using the RAP outside area to build structures, exercise and tend the RAP garden.
