At Heatley Secondary College we work hard on our pedagogical practices which are based around the Quality Learning and Teaching framework.
Our aim is that each student and staff member is "Assessment Literate" in that they understand exactly what they are learning, what they are being assessed on, how they are being assessed and the standards necessary to attain their grades.
We also work hard at having students setting goals and strategies for them to achieve their desired level. Student planners are used to assist this process.
An essential element under all this is reading. We use Directed Reading Thinking Activities as the basis for our literacy approaches.
