About Teaching & Learning

ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE

Carine Senior High School’s whole school priorities to raise student expectations and standards and embrace rigorous academic learning together with improved and explicit communication with parents and students has been supported by the implementation of key school leadership positions.
The school has restructured its leadership profile to focus on these priorities. Two Associate Principals, Lower School and Senior School, with the primary focus on improving academic performance, work with the school community to meet individual student potential and improve overall student results. Supporting these roles are two Academic Performance Managers. The Managers’ role is to provide strategic leadership aimed at monitoring and working more closely with individual students and their families to develop strategies for improvement.

STUDENT ATTITUDE, BEHAVIOUR AND EFFORT (ABE) AT SCHOOL

A student’s attitude, behaviour and effort has an important bearing on their own learning as well as the learning of others.

Teachers are required to mark all students on the Department of Education’s attitude, behaviour and effort descriptors used in the formal reporting to parents.

  1. Works to the best of their ability.
     
  2. Participates fully.
     
  3. Shows courtesy and respect for others.
     
  4. Is well organised.
     
  5. Meets deadlines.
     
  6. Works independently.
     
  7. Behaves appropriately.
     
  8. Makes positive change in response to feedback.

Each student should strive to achieve a ‘consistent’ mark against the eight Attitude, Behaviour and Effort descriptors on the Semester Reports.

A school based review process is held each year to identify students requiring support to improve their attitude, behaviour and effort at school.
