Single funding source
School initiatives may be funded from a single funding source.
The single funding source example demonstrates the use of socio-economic background (equity loading) 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.
2022 Planning and reporting
- Collaborative planning completed by Assistant Principal Curriculum and Instruction (base staff entitlement) $1,068
- Resource text types $8,000
- Socio-economic background $8,000
Note: figures are based on standard rates for 2022 calendar year and rounded to the nearest dollar.
2023 Planning and reporting
From 2023 schools are required to identify a funding source for relevant activities, however, do not need to allocate a dollar amount. Schools can continue to use the free text field to include information on resources.
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.
