Teaching and learning

At Kedron State High School we firmly believe that our core business is your students’ learning. We strive to meet the needs of our learners in a variety of ways.

In years 8 to 10 we differentiate the learning in the core subject areas of English, Maths, Science and History based on your student’s demonstrated ability in the subject as well as his/her literacy and numeracy skills.
 
In extension classes we focus on extending the students through activities such as the implementation of higher order thinking skills. Students cover the core work as outlined in the national curriculum but the approach of the teacher is altered to suit the specific needs of this group.

In mainstream classes the students are completing the national curriculum and your student’s core teachers have strategies in place designed to help your student improve.

Our assisted learning classes include learning support and English as a Second Language (ESL). Again the teachers’ focus is on assisting their students to meet the core demands of the national curriculum with additional scaffolding and support.

In 2013 we have introduced student learning plans for students in Years 8 to 12. In week one of this term all students were issued with a student learning plan and students in Years 9 to 12 received another copy of their semester 2, 2012 report. Your student is responsible for setting a goal for every class as well as two actions that they will put in place to achieve that goal. The student shares his/her goals with their teacher who will ensure that the goals are realistic and the actions appropriate. You will be able to discuss your student’s goals and actions with his/her teachers at parent teacher night and we would encourage you to discuss the goals regularly with your student. The plans are kept in the student’s homework notebook.
