Great Results Guarantee
The second funding opportunity for 2014 comes from the state government’s ‘Great Results Guarantee’ initiative. This has seen an extra $71 000 provided for the school to drive literacy and numeracy improvement. The deal is that our school guarantees every child will achieve National Minimum Standards in NAPLAN testing or be achieving Individual Learning Goals. We are extremely confident that we can achieve these guarantees. Some of the initiatives possible as a result of the funding include:
Extra teacher aide time to target at risk students through:
Writing enrichment programs provided by teachers
Targeted professional development to continue to ensure best teaching practise (explicit instruction).
Professional learning opportunities focused on improving numeracy outcomes
Our school P&C has discussed many of the initiatives and supports the school plan to allocate the finance. I’m sure that we will see significant improvement in the key areas of literacy and numeracy as a result of the funding.
