Professional Development for Teachers

To enhance teacher practice and subsequently optimise student learning outcomes we aim to provide opportunities for staff observation, coaching, feedback and reflection. Teachers observe each other teaching, and participate in a peer coaching conversations. All classroom teachers participate in a weekly Professional Learning Community where the focus is on analysing student data for evidence of student learning in Literacy or Numeracy, and making plans to drive the learning of all students forward.
