School Self Evaluation

Following a full review of the teaching and learning of numeracy in our school during Term 2 and Term 3 of the 2022/2023 school year we have decided to focus on the measures strand unit for our School Improvement Plan. When reviewing and drafting our improvement plan we followed these steps:

  4. Write and share report and improvement plan

  5. Put Improvement Plan into Action
