Literacy & Numeracy

At St. Mary’s, we believe that literacy competence is the foundation for effective learning and that Mathematics is fundamental to ensuring that our students are equipped with the necessary skills to successfully take part in society. 

We make Mathematics engaging by bringing it to life with real world problem solving. Within the program we implement a combination of whole class, small group and individual teaching strategies to support students. Our primary focus is on open-ended mathematics investigations, enabling or extending students at their point of need.

Our teachers work collaboratively in teams to identify the current learning needs of each student, to ascertain where they need to go next in their learning, and to design rich and engaging learning experiences, drawing on research-based best practice.

Classroom teachers, support teachers and learning support officers work with students in small groups to provide explicit teaching opportunities to enable or extend learning. This ensures that each student receives regular and targeted explicit teaching.
