Fundamental to learning in the Junior School is the establishment of highly proficient literacy and numeracy skills to support the development of critical thinking, deep learning and higher order conceptual understandings.
To ensure your daughter’s educational needs are met we undertake an assessment of all girls as they enter the Junior School. We develop a strong understanding of your child’s areas of strength and those needing support. Our teaching is then differentiated to allow each girl to be challenged and stimulated in her learning journey.
The delivery of activities that establish highly proficient literacy and numeracy skills is the core focus of class teachers. The girls also enjoy additional support from the specialist Literacy and Mathematics teachers and teachers’ assistants who work in the room.
Children already demonstrating competence in basic skills are challenged to apply this core knowledge in investigation and extension tasks while those needing additional time to consolidate their knowledge are supported with explicit teaching.
Every girl is challenged and stimulated in her learning journey where the holistic development of each child is paramount.
