Learning Support

Stuart Park school provides a comprehensive range of support for students including:

  • Literacy and Numeracy Program
  • The Mini Lit & Multi Lit Programs
  • QuickSmart Maths
  • Transition Support Assistants
  • Specialist teacher for Reading and Writing groups
  • The Nemarluk classes and
  • The buddy programs that all classes are involved in to make school a fun learning experience for all children.

Literacy and Numeracy Program

The school has a program that identifies areas of need and moves resources to support students through providing extra tutor assistance. Teachers use the data that the school collects to monitor student progress and target areas of need.

Minilit and Multilit

This Reading Program is research based and was developed at Macquarie University. We have several teachers and tutors trained to implement this program which has been effective in supporting students who have fallen behind in reading.

Quicksmart

This intensive maths program targets students who need to catch up on their automatic recall of number facts. It is run by trained teachers and tutors and follows a research based approach.

Transition Support Assistants

Each Transition class (5 year olds) has an assistant who works with children to support them in their first year of school.

Specialist Teachers

There are teachers who work with identified students in Early Childhood to extend their writing and reading skills. These students spend time with students from other classes each week and work towards extending their skills.

Nemarluk

Two classes from Nemarluk School, a school for special needs children, come to Stuart Park for four days a week.

The pupils have their own classrooms at Stuart Park School, one junior and one senior group, where they learn maths, literacy and life skills with Nemarluk staff.

They enjoy joining in Stuart Park classes for a variety of programs eg physical education, art, library, learning centre activities, music, technology and health.

Buddy Program

The buddy program at Stuart Park is where is classes from the upper primary area of the school adopt an early childhood class to work with.

Students in the upper primary classes work with one or two buddies (depending on numbers) and do activities with them like:

  • arts and making things,
  • sport, and
  • independent choice.
  • This is a great learning experience for the Early Childhood and Upper Primary students as they each learn how the class communities can work together.
