Our Learning Approach
Croydon Primary School is extremely proud of its continually improving NAPLAN results.
These results are not due to any one program, but are proof of the holistic view we take to education. There has been structural change with a new Principal and teachers planning and teaching together. There has also been a shift in instruction, ensuring we are teaching the individual not programs. We have used Language Experience and word matrices to improve vocabulary. The development of vocabulary has lead to the significantly improved Literacy results.
There are also small things that contribute to the engagement and positivity of our students; a growth mindset, positive relationships with their teachers, wonderful specialist programs who work closely with class teachers, our chaplain and social worker, links with the local Lions Club providing breakfast 2 days a week, our regular partnership with Murrundindi and Respectful Relationships.
We also thank ACARA for recognising our incredible work.
Come and see what we are doing at anytime!
