Teaching and learning

 

Pedagogical Framework

At Port Curtis Road we believe that teaching and learning should be child centred, responding to the needs of the students in our classes. We create an environment that is responsive to student needs by:

  • Creating an environment for collaborative learning based on a recognition of each child’s learning needs
  • Recognising that all children learn in different ways. By addressing      individuality and diversity the school strives to cater for the needs of each child individuality and diversity the school strives to cater for the needs of each child through a strong philosophical commitment to individualised, small group and large group (across age and year levels) teaching strategies differentiating the curriculum to best meet the needs of individual students by providing additional scaffolding or extension for students

The individual needs of students are addressed through the following:

  • Differentiation
  • Flexible class structures
  • Cooperative planning with specialist staff
  • Quality classroom programs
  • Curriculum Support Model that supports inclusive education
  • Use of a variety of strategies including explicit teaching, cooperative learning inquiry-based learning
  • Integration of ICT into planning/teaching and learning
