1 Sally Menadue Principal, O’Sullivan Beach School phone O’Sullivan Beach School ‘If our students don’t learn the way we teach them, then we must teach them the way they learn’. Is it really as simple as that? What are we doing that is making a difference? Every teacher is responsible for every child’s learning outcomes – we are a team We identify and select best practise to achieve optimum outcomes Our teachers take immediate action when faced with learning needs rather than waiting for a referral to take place We focus on individual strengths, therefore developing a positive self-esteem in our learners We no longer expect our outcomes to be the ‘same’ as previous years as we have changed our approaches and demand improvement Implemented and sustained a whole school belief and approach to pedagogy – we look for trouble in our data – if students are not learning what we have taught, why? We have a zero tolerance of failure – we take action when our targets are not met Our rigorous scrutiny and interrogation of our data is followed by proactive approach – immediate action O’Sullivan Beach school is “Dyslexia Friendly” Leadership and management – Opportunities for “teacher talk”, whole school approach Partnership – Home-school-home, open/honest and timely communication Teaching and learning – R3, 3-7 Ability grouping, assessment for and of learning, specific programmes (Jolly Phonics), knowledgeable and informed teachers, data to inform and practise Classroom environment – Multi-sensory, ICT, safe learning environment, conducive to risk taking All students across our school are benefiting from our obvious, but effective whole school approaches to classroom pedagogy.
