Ability Based Teaching
At Jells Park Primary School we group our students based on ability for Literacy and Numeracy instruction within their Level from Foundation to Level 6. Ability based groupings allow the teacher to target instruction to a students’ point of need more easily. It also allows for the students to work through the curriculum at a pace that is better suited to their abilities, while still being challenged.
These groups are fluid and students move when their demonstrated abilities show that it is needed. At Jells Park Primary School we believe in ensuring that every student achieves growth academically, socially and emotionally during their schooling. The rate of this growth will differ for each child.
The classrooms and the daily timetable have been structured to best cater for this strategy.
