Pedagogy

 

Every day staff address the academic needs and well-being of each child. We provide students with a challenging and stimulating work environment, extend their strengths and talents, and give them every opportunity to achieve their goals.

Our key to ‘raising the bar’ is targeted improvement in Literacy and Numeracy underpinned by differentiation throughout our teaching practice. To maximise student success we embed a culture of excellence based on research into best practice. We implement a whole school approach to Literacy as developing literacy skills is fundamental to creating powerful learners. This approach includes the use of non-fiction writing templates in all subjects.

The use of student data informs our teaching with NAPLAN and Progressive Achievement testing results used diagnostically to target key areas in English/EAL and Maths.
