Single funding source
School initiatives may be funded from a single funding source.
The single funding source example demonstrates the use of Literacy and Numeracy (initiative funding) as a single funding source to resource a literacy program in a central school setting.
Scenario - Peer Tutoring program
Strategic direction: Year 1 implementation and progress monitoring
Literacy: Peer Tutoring program
2. School Excellence Framework
- Learning – Curriculum
- Teaching – Learning and Development
- One-on-one guided reading to Stage 1 students led by Year 10 students involving a variety of text types.
- Guidance provided by Year 10 students to Stage 1 students to effectively self-assess against the Reading and Viewing elements of the Literacy learning progressions (LLPs) to enable students to contribute to their own learning goals.
- Teachers conduct observations of Year 10 students against the Speaking and Listening elements of the LLPs.
- Teacher release for collaborative planning 2 teachers x 1 day release each ($521) = $1,042
- Resource text types $8,000
- Literacy and numeracy $9,042
Note: figures are based on standard rates for 2020 calendar year and rounded to the nearest dollar.
5. Evaluation and evidence of impact
The national LLPs were used as a whole-school strategy ranging across K-12 (central school) providing maximum student learning through the establishment of clear learning goals for individual students.
- 100% of students in Stage 1 have demonstrated growth in reading fluency.
- 84% of Year 10 students were able to demonstrate the LiS5 indicators within the Speaking and Listening element.
