Strong consultation processes
Schools with effective community engagement provide a broad range of flexible opportunities to engage, inform and consult with parents, carers and relevant community members. Traditional models of communication with the Parents and Citizens Association (P&C) are one of many diverse modes of consulting with the full range of parent and carer groups in schools today.
Instructional leadership in 'talk for writing'
At Condell Park Public School, instructional leadership was used to implement 'Talk for Writing', an evidence-based writing pedagogy, initially for students from EAL/D backgrounds. The pedagogy provides students of all language backgrounds with a systematic modelled, guided and independent approach to writing based on pre-assessment of student needs.
