Evaluating strategies to engage parents and community members in a sustained manner requires effective use of data tools. As part of the School Excellence in Action cycle, schools are required to demonstrate to their communities how they intend to meet student needs and improve the learning outcomes for students.
Data informed practice
Bankstown West Public School have implemented data informed practices to support classroom teachers and leaders in developing professional knowledge, skills and confidence to systematically record student learning progress using a school-designed digital data system. The core intent of the initiative was to capture, analyse and interpret student engagement, growth and outcomes to inform the ongoing learning of each student.
