Learning Support

Macgregor Primary School provides learning environments and programs that are supportive, well organised, rigorous, engaging, inclusive and differentiated. We are committed to improving student outcomes through high quality teaching and learning.

Response to Intervention

'Response to Intervention' refers to a process that emphasises how well students respond to changes in instruction. The essential elements of an RTI approach are:

Growth Mindset

Recent advances in neuroscience shows that the brain is very malleable. Teachers encourage hard work and effort to cultivate a growth mindset. When students have a growth mindset, they take on challenges and learn from them, therefore increasing their abilities and achievement. Teachers establishing a culture of feedback for students, is an important element of nurturing a growth mindset culture across our school.

Restorative Practices

Teachers provide support to ensure that the children engage in high quality academic and social learning. Our focus on the Australian Curriculum's General Capabilities supports the development of children to develop critical thinking, ethical and social capabilities and dispositions that support compassion, equity, and social justice.

The focus of the restorative process is about reconnecting and nurturing relationships within the school community. The conference process provides a way for individuals to be accountable and take responsibility for their behaviour through opportunities to repair harm, have harm repaired, and find a way forward.
