Reach - Strategic Intent & Priorities
Priorities for 2010
School communities will build on the 2009 priorities of improving literacy and numeracy. This will be achieved, in part, by using the two high yield strategies of
data to inform teacher planning and feedback to inform student learning.
Our schools have made significant progress engaging with the priorities and deepening their understanding by sharing their learning within their communities and across networks. In 2010, we will strengthen this work through a broader engagement as we build on local experience and improve teacher-learning.
We will continue to sharpen our focus by asking the question – Who is your class?
This question focuses our attention on building the capacity of those for whom we are directly responsible. Principals and the school leadership team are responsible for teachers, teachers are responsible for students, etc. This focus ensures that learning is cascaded through every level of the school to improve the learning outcomes for all students.
Teacher-learning is at the heart of the Theory of Action, and central to the Leading Pedagogy element within the Leadership Framework. The improvement of student learning requires school communities to understand, interpret and apply the data which provides teachers with important feedback on student learning and achievement, which in turn leads to greater teacher capacity.
