Tatachilla promotes empowerment, positive interaction, confidence, choice and independence for students.
Class teachers provide a stimulating and differentiated curriculum to meet the needs of all learners. Students are further supported in a variety of ways including:
- small group options
- personalised 1:1 support
- a differentiated curriculum within the context of an Individual Education Plan
Successful programs* delivered include: Reading Tutor (1:1); MiniLit (4:1) and Pre-Lit (4:1).
Ongoing assessments of student literacy and numeracy skill development are used to assist with prioritising support for learning. This begins with a School Entry Assessment in Reception during Term 1, followed by close monitoring of the annual summative PAT assessments in Years 1 to 6. Support is constantly monitored and whilst some children may require ongoing support others may access short term programs before returning to a quality differentiated classroom environment.
L.A.P. Volunteers (Learning Assistance Program) work individually with students under teacher guidance. This builds self-esteem and confidence for students.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Karen Turner, the Learning Enhancement Coordinator.
*Students selected based on the changing student needs within the whole school framework.
