Supporting Children's Learning

At St John Bosco School we work in partnership with families to ensure the needs of each child are supported in order for them to flourish and feel successful.

Support programs include Early Intervention Programs for Literacy such as MiniLit (Rec-Year 2) and MacqLit (Year 3-6). MiniLit and MacqLIt are led by trained tutors to small groups of children.

Educational Support Officers work within our learning environments to support the teacher and children throughout the day.

We have an Inclusive Education Teacher and English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EALD) Teacher to support teachers to plan, implement and assess children within our community.

Families are encouraged to arrange Allied Health Professionals, such as Occupational Therapists or Speech Therapists to work with their children throughout the school day and within the school environment. We will happily provide the space and time for your child to work with these professionals. If you have any further questions regarding this, please speak to your child’s teacher.

Assessment and Reporting

Learning conversations are offered throughout the year. These times can be utilised to discuss your child’s learning journey in depth. We also compile end of semester reports, which are distributed to families at the end of Terms 2 and 4.

We encourage and welcome parents to make an appointment with the classroom teacher to discuss your child’s progress.
