Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF)
In September 2017, the Swaledale Teaching Alliance were awarded a grant from the Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF) to ‘raise attainment in Maths through metacognition’. In February 2018, we joined another nine schools (all with a high percentage of children from service backgrounds) to begin working together on this exciting project.
We introduced the LORIC family to help build the essential character attributes of leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication.
In partnership with Lead Practitioners, our staff support pupils to better understand how they learn and, more importantly, how to help themselves.
