Reflections on SEF S-aS and EV
Staff need significant development in the data skills and use element. This will then inform our practices and support student learning. With such inexperienced staff, significant support is required to improve effective classroom practice and how to best engage our students and community. We are not engaging our CLO effectively enough and need to use school resources more effectively to get the uplift we need in attendance and NAPLAN performance. HSC monitoring and engagement with our community remain a focus to improve retention and HSC attainment.
The EV process further highlighted the need to create a stronger link to the data, staff engagement with authentic self-assessment at both an individual and whole school level, and the resulting actions for improvement. It is clear that evidence-informed practice that relates specifically to our identified areas of needs has to be accessed to achieve our targets.
