Teaching & Learning

Teaching and Learning at St Anthony’s

St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School is a Visible Learning School. This means the principles and practices which underpin the delivery, assessment and reporting of the Australian Curriculum are based on the research gathered and analysed by Professor John Hattie and his team. Learning and Teaching is visible when the learning goal is not only challenging but is explicit; when there is feedback given and sought and when teachers and students are fully engaged.

St Anthony’s Learning and Teaching Principles

The following principles are the foundation of how we aim to develop a culture of learning in the context of our Catholic faith at St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School:

  • We are committed to developing a Catholic faith community that ensures growth in faith, life and identity.
  • We seek to inspire high expectations for learning and teaching that maximises engagement, progress and achievement for each learner in our school.
  • We acknowledge the importance of equity and the right of every student to access an inclusive curriculum that is differentiated and which celebrates the achievements of our diverse learners.
  • We believe in the positive influence of research-based whole school approaches which build a common language and suite of common practices to enhance teaching and learning.
  • We emphasise student engagement and teacher efficacy.
  • We support and develop emerging and current technologies to enhance learning and teaching.
