Teaching and Learning
Teaching and Learning at Cranleigh
As part of the teaching and learning cycle, each students’ learning needs are identified using a range of different planning tools, including
- Individual Access to Learning Plans
- Parent Teacher Meeting information
- Previous reports and assessments – curriculum and therapy reports
- Current teacher assessments
From this process teachers work with parents to identify the appropriate Australian Curriculum achievement standards for each student.
IALPs at Cranleigh (Individual Adjustments to Learning Plan and Reporting)
All students have an Individual Adjustments to Learning Plan (IALP) developed in collaboration with staff, parents/carers and relevant therapists to ensure it meets the student’s current educational needs. Each student’s IALP covers the strategies and adjustments that teachers and school staff have in place to support learning and engagement in all curriculum areas. IALPs are regularly reviewed as additional strategies or adjustments occur.
Reporting At Cranleigh
Formal Reports are sent home to parents twice a year – at the end of term 2 and the end of term 4. These reports focus on each students learning of the Australian Curriculum.
An Appraisal Meeting is held for students in Kindergarten and Years 3 and 6. Meetings involve families (including the student, if you wish); the class teacher, the Principal (or delegate) and can also include therapists and other people who you would like to collaborate in the planned learning for your child. A moderator from the Disability Education Section of the Directorate supports families and the school in the Appraisal meeting.
