Preston South Primary School is committed to promoting and developing the state education targets:
Teachers at Preston South Primary School plan their curriculum to cater for these diversities in their classrooms by using a variety of assessment tools, different learning and teaching strategies, ideas and teaching materials so that all students can learn effectively, regardless of differences in ability.
Differentiation in the classroom can be recognised in a variety of ways:
At Preston South Primary School assessment is integral to the teaching and learning cycle. Teachers use the evidence from assessment to provide feedback to the learner and to adapt the learning program in response to the learner's needs.
Our assessment schedule is appropriately paced throughout the school year, allowing teachers to continually identify each child’s learning point of need. This allows us to scaffold learning experiences to support the individual needs of every child. We measure learning achievement against continuums of learning that informs us of where to next for each child’s learning goal. Our focus of creating personalised learning is supported by using the ongoing information gathered from assessment that monitors and measures learning achievement, and to set learning goals for our students. Providing feedback and reflection to our students are an integral part of our teaching pedagogy.
