Individualised Learning Experiences and Support for Students
Our smaller class sizes provide greater opportunities for individualised learning experiences and support. Teachers work in partnership with parents to meet the needs of all students.
Individualised Learning Plans are implemented if required, with teachers creating these plans in collaboration with the school leadership team. We engage the services of our CEWA Psychologist or CEWA Students with Disabilities consultant, as required.
Our school is inclusive of students for whom English is an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D). Teachers assist with meeting the social, pastoral and academic needs of EAL/D students.
Selected students participate in MiniLit or MacqLit, which support students and complement the classroom InitiaLit program.
MiniLit is an evidence-based, explicit and effective early literacy intervention program for teaching reading skills to children who are in the bottom 25% of the expected range for their age group in Year 1 or 2. MiniLit is a Tier 2 small group program (up to four students per group) within a Response to Intervention framework, but it can also be used on a one-to-one basis.
MacqLit is an explicit and systematic reading intervention program for small groups of older low-progress readers (Years 3 – 6). It provides teachers with a comprehensive sequence of lessons that includes all the key components necessary for effective reading instruction: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
Our teachers collaborate regularly to further support the learning needs of students, sharing strategies and reflecting on student data.
