QUALITY TEACHING AND LEARNING

BY OUR HIGHLY SKILLED PROFESSIONAL AND INSPIRATIONAL TEACHERS

Belrose Public School prides itself on its strong academic results, Sporting, Japanese and Performing Arts programs as well as its abundance of extra curricular opportunities for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. Student learning and each child's wellbeing continues to be our focus at Belrose Public School.

All of our staff are highly accomplished teachers who teach to high standards. The professional learning of all of our staff builds our teachers' collective capacity and develops a common language across all learning areas. We have an 'off limit to student' classroom with a comprehensive Data wall which tracks each child through his/her development of key Literacy milestones. Our meeting times are spent talking about and sharing impactful teaching strategies from Kindergarten to Year 6.

Evidence of learning through student work samples is used in regular, ongoing co-teaching conversations. Teachers collaboratively determine how to broaden their individual and collective instructional repertoire, their descriptive feedback strategies and how they can best design teaching practices to move students from one level of work to the next and beyond expectat ions.

At Belrose Publ ic School, Literacy and critical thinking skills are across all subject areas. Our balanced literacy instruction supports our students to develop meaning-making skills in all subject areas of Numeracy, Geography/History, Science and Technology.

All teachers are skillful at differentiating their teaching practices to cater for the learning needs of all students within the class. Our comprehensive early intervention programs by our Learning and Support Teacher through our Minilit, Multilit and Macqlit programs ensure that students are not left behind. Learning growth of all of our students in all Key Learning Areas is due to our dedicated, professional, caring and supportive staff.
