The Francis Framework | Teaching & Learning at SFdS

At St Francis de Sales, we believe it is every student’s right to experience growth in their learning. Our approach is informed by the principles of the Response to Intervention model, which is a multi-tiered system for supporting the academic and behavioural needs of all learners. We have developed clear, whole-school practices for identifying and meeting these needs, based on our belief in every student’s entitlement to learn.

In all areas, we strive to:

• Create timely opportunities for varied and purposeful assessment

• Use evidence-based teaching practices that are informed by student data

• Develop quality curriculum that is inclusive of the needs of all learners, and

• Create and maintain a culture of excellence

Our core curriculum is comprised of Literacy, Mathematics, Education in Faith, and Inquiry, underpinned by positive education practices that support the wellbeing of learners in all areas.
