We support our students through a collaborative
approach. Teachers collect and analyse data on student learning outcomes and
identify students who require support or extension. Teachers differentiate the
curriculum, pedagogy and assessment to best meet the needs of the range of
students in their classrooms. Identified students are referred to the social
justice committee, where decisions are made about what targeted support is to
be provided to the student.
Students may be:
- catered for through differentiation
practices in the classroom
- supported through targeted literacy
programs: ELF; PMAP; OLLEY, Morning reading program
- referred to the social justice committee
- identified as requiring and Individual
Curriculum Plan (ICP) in order to meet the needs of extra support or extension.
Moranbah State School is a “Kids Matter” School. We have a committee made up of school
leadership, teachers and teacher aides that drive the program across the
school. A major role of this team is to
run lunchtime groups for students that require support socially. These groups occur every day across the
school, and all students are invited, however some students are referred by
their classroom teacher.
Another aspect to this program is the school has whole
school focuses in relation to social behaviour.
These social skills are announced on parade by the Deputy Principal, and
these skills are discussed in class and in the playground in order to reinforce
the target behaviour.
At Moranbah State School there is a strong focus on
student leadership. The student Council
is made up of 2 class captains from each class year 3 – 5, year 6 leaders and 4
School Captains. The Student Council
meets every Monday morning to discuss ways to support their fellow students.
One role these students play is to run lunchtime
activities and offer lunchtime support across the school. Each day there are student leaders working in
their break to support students in need and run games to help engage students.
Parents are important stakeholders in the education of
our children. We have provided a range of resources for parents to access for
support. We endeavour to provide parents with learning opportunities to support
the educational outcomes of their children.
As a parent if you feel you need support, please feel
free to speak to your class teacher or any member of the administration
team. Staff at Moranbah State School,
are committed to supporting our parents.
