Being a small school we have the ability to design and implement quality individual extension plans (IEP) for students identified as having exceptional talent in the academics or performing arts.
Mount Kuring-gai Public School specialises in personalised learning plans (PLP) in the academics. Our school has a dedicated learning support team, which is designed to work with the student and parents to extend and challenge targeted students. Our school regularly has students successfully gaining entry into our local selective high schools.
We have a targeted dance group, tutored by a highly trained dance teacher. This troupe will be performing in regional and state competitions. Our school choir is recognised as a leader in the region and is tutored by outstanding and dedicated staff members.
Senior students identified has having talent in technology will be developing coding skills in dedicated lessons. These lessons will be conducted by the principal. At Mount Kuring-gai Public School we believe that all students have the right to be challenged and have their individual needs met. Our highly trained staff are always available to discuss opportunities to develop a PLP for your child.
Reading recovery is a research-based intervention with the prime goals of accelerating literacy learning. Reading recovery implementation is systematic and comprehensive. It encompasses professional development for teachers and a research and evaluation component. This allows us to monitor the program effectively and to ensure accountability.
As a result, reading recovery has been heralded as a catalyst for change in literacy practises in schools. Students eligible for reading recovery in Year 1 work with Mrs Tudor for half an hour each day for 20 weeks and it is expected that they will achieve at grade level.
