Quality School Improvement Planning
Teachers and leaders across the Department for Education are working tirelessly to build a stronger future for South Australian children.
Our education system aspires to become the best in Australia by seeking growth for every student, in every class, and in every school. The work towards creating an environment that encourages and enables continuous improvement is well underway. We are reviewing our School Improvement planning through rigorous and extensive analysis of all the data that we have access to. Our planning will be informed by evidence of student learning and best practice strategies for achieving growth.
Part of the evidence we use for school improvement planning is our NAPLAN results. We will send these home later in Week 10. We have just received these results and Staff are currently studying these and will use them as part of their reporting and planning processes in Term 4.
We have continued to see some terrific growth with almost half of our Year 3 students in the top bands for reading. We saw some amazing growth in numeracy between Year 3 and 5 with 88 percent achieving medium to high growth. Our Year 7 students also showed some terrific growth with 84 percent achieving medium to high growth in Numeracy. We have some fantastically dedicated and highly professional teachers at St Leonards and our continued improved results reflect this
We are working at keeping our students safe by keeping the main gates to the school shut during opening hours. If you come through a gate between 8:45am and 3:05pm could you please shut the gate behind you. Thank you.
Casual Clothes Day
We will celebrate the end of term with a casual clothes day on Friday 27 September. Students can come dressed in appropriate attire for school. No gold coin required.
