Personnel

Classroom teachers at St Peter’s implement the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum in all KLA’s, providing explicit teaching and learning experiences which develop positive values and attitudes towards the use and study of each subject.

The Learning Support Teacher (LST) assists in the assessment of students’ literacy and numeracy levels and provides support to the classroom teacher so that opportunities for curriculum differentiation are implemented, ensuring all students have access to the curriculum and individual literacy and numeracy needs are met. They also assist with the development of special programs for students with disabilities, when required.

The Learning Support Assistant, where allocated, assists the class teacher within the classroom context or on a one-to-one or small group basis, following programs devised by the class teacher and/or LST.

The Teacher Librarian will support the teacher through provision of programs of work to complement what is being taught in the classroom by providing further opportunities to develop skills in information technology.

The Library Assistant supports the development of literacy by assisting in the retrieval of resources and helping students to locate suitably levelled books.

Parent and Community volunteers are encouraged to assist classroom teachers during the day in activities such as, reading groups in the English teaching session, art and science activities or in any of the other Key Learning Areas.
