Our Curriculum team, led by our Head of Curriculum Maths/ Science and Head of Curriculum English/ HASS collaboratively  develop literacy and numeracy programs that encourage higher order thinking skills, are responsive to student’s needs, align with the Australian Curriculum requirements and reflect our whole school pedagogical framework so that effective instruction is happening in every classroom, every day.
This promotes high expectations and positively influences the achievements of our students so that they develop a life-long love of learning.
Literacy and Numeracy Focus:
Yarrilee State School has highlighted Literacy and Numeracy as school priority areas.
Year level teams together with our Heads of Curriculum English and Maths and the Leadership team meet regularly to examine student achievement data in order to target student misunderstandings in literacy and numeracy. High yield teaching strategies are identified that will ensure that children are continually moving forward and developing deep understanding.
"Flying Squad" teams compromising of teacher aides work with each mini school ensuring each child receives regular adult support targeted to meet  their needs.
