Literacy and numeracy

At Caritas College we prioritise literacy and numeracy as fundamentals of learning. As first educators of children/young people, families have a significant role in the ongoing learning of their child. In partnership with families, teachers at Caritas College aim to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes for all students.

Teachers at Caritas College:

  • use a range of strategies to explicitly teach literacy and numeracy skills across all learning areas
  • use a range of literacy and numeracy education practices
  • analyse data (eg from NAPLAN, PAT Reading & Mathematics and other assessments) to further inform teaching practices and to support student improvement
