Learning Support – Literacy and Numeracy
Mumbulla School adopts research based programs to support children with additional learning needs. We use Macquarie University’s programs, MiniLit, MultiLit, MacqLit and MultiLit Extension for Literacy intervention. We use the Australian based Maths Mastery Series for Numeracy Intervention. These include regular diagnostic assessment of skills and individual assessments to monitor learning and provide feedback.
Literacy and Numeracy Intervention Programs implemented at the school are designed to meet the needs of children who need additional, explicit teaching in these two key learning areas. The school advocates for early identification and intervention so that children receive the necessary support in a timely manner. Programs range from extra support in class to small group and individual tuition with one of our specialist teachers or a parent volunteer.
The Learning Support Team works closely with all the Class Teachers to meet the children’s needs.
