Welcome to Glenwood State School
Our Whole School Improvement Focus
Reading is our major focus at this school. We analyse and discuss student data to inform our teaching and intervention practices. We believe that all students can be successful and have high expectations of all students to succeed. The community are supporting us through the P&C to ensure we have the best resources.
We have a targeted use of our school resources to assist with improving reading across the whole school. Our ‘Investing for Success’ grant is being used to provide more teacher aide time, which enables us to run our Daily Rapid Reading program and gives us a teacher aide in every classroom. More teacher aides in the classrooms, means more individualised instruction for every student. We are ensuring every teacher and teacher aide have the skills to teach reading and implement any required intervention with individual students. This is done through accessing quality and relevant professional development and regular conversations/feedback with the Principal.
The teachers have been working hard with the Principal to ensure that the curriculum they deliver aligns with the Australian curriculum standards and individual student needs. In all classrooms, we deliver the curriculum using explicit teaching and ensure all students receive quality feedback on their work, so that we are constantly improving.
We differentiate our curriculum to ensure every student is receiving the support they need to succeed at their level. We are feeling great about 2017 and the improvements/achievements ahead!
