We aim for every child to be the best they can be and achieve to their potential. This is generally achieved through the programmes provided within the classroom. Teachers use assessment information to group students according to learning needs in reading, writing and mathematics. Teachers and students will also co-construct personal learning goals in these areas.
Sometimes there is a need to provide additional programmes to support the learning of individuals and groups of students. These programmes are provided dependent on resourcing and personnel. Teachers and management make the final decisions as to who would benefit from these programmes.
The school engages with outside support networks on a needs basis and is able to provide the following support:
RTLB (Resource Teacher for Learning and Behaviour)
RTLiT (Resource Teacher for Literacy)
Fluid Groupings across the school
Some students require additional support with their learning. Programmes can generally be provided for within the classroom through teachers differentiating the programme and providing support within the curriculum area. Teachers identify students requiring support and may work with Teacher Aides under the guidance of the teacher, DP, Learning Support Teacher and/or outside agencies.
Some of the programmes made available are:
Early Words, STEPS Literacy Programme, Hooked on Books, Hooked on Writing, Numeracy Groups, Boys Reading Mentoring Programme, Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP).
