The Gardens School Annual Reporting Analysis of Variance and Kiwi Sports Statement

The Gardens School has well embedded structures and systems for assessing, tracking, targeting and improving student achievement. Literacy and Numeracy are key areas for us and as such detailed planning goes into supporting our learners. For 2018, the following plans and support programmes were put in place.

Literacy:

School Wide Goal: To accelerate student achievement in Reading using a range of purposeful strategies that target student needs.

2018 Target: has been set at 75% of students achieving at or above expectation at the end of the year.

This target reflects the need to set an achievable result across all year levels.

This target includes the focus on at risk students who were not at expectation at the end of the 2017 school year. Using the ‘Raising Student achievement Through Targeted Actions’ (ERO 2015) as a guide, a target of accelerated learning for 40% of the students who were identified as ‘below The Gardens School expectation’ at the end of 2017 is in place. This target anticipates 60-70 at risk students reaching the expected level for their age/year level, by the end of the year, through targeted in class support and additional initiatives as outlined below, in effect this would exceed the 75% target.

2018 Progress against expectations

Observations:

Our students are coming into school with very low SEA results, seemingly regardless of ethnicity or ESOL backgrounds.

Our transience is steadily increasing, as is our number of students from low socio-economic backgrounds.

We have an increasing number of 'special needs' students entering our school and requiring MOE, RTLB, PHN or some other support put in place for them to be able to access the curriculum easily

Numeracy:

School Wide Goal: To lift student achievement in Mathematics, through the development of a range of strategies that enables the acceleration of all students. Across the school we are able to continue to focus on the acceleration of all students, including those who are above.

Target: (Y0-8) 80% of students will be in line or better than ‘End of Year’ expectations.

This is a direct result of the way we use our Kiwi Sports funding to partially fund our full time Physical Education teacher.

They are taught basic skills as well as game rules and sportsmanship and provided with many opportunities to use these skills. Our staff offer to our students, lunchtime games and refereeing so that students are active and busy during breaks, as well as having opportunities to participate in formal and informal games.
