Abermain Public School
Abermain Public School has over 200 students and a team of staff committed to improving educational outcomes for students. In providing quality teaching for all students, the leadership team and staff have developed a range of initiatives including a literacy group timetable that provides extra staffing for critical phases of reading instruction, a numeracy group timetable that provides extra staffing for critical phases of maths instruction and a combined outcomes approach that maximises student engagement and syllabus coverage. The school is involved in National Partnerships for Literacy and Numeracy. In Stages 2 and 3 Reading to Learn is used along with Multilit to improve student outcomes. Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 focus on Best Start for student achievement in the beginning years of school. Student welfare strategies are guided by the implementation of Positive Behaviours for Learning.
