These subjects allow students to identify passions, build on their existing skills and enjoy the engagement of a different learning area.
Our numeracy program provides students with a strong grounding in mathematical skills, strategies and understandings. The aim is to support students in becoming numerate and use mathematics effectively so they can successfully participate at school, at home and in the wider community. Mathematics at Beverford is a positive, engaging and hands on experience, in which our students develop confidence and a sense of achievement from what they learn.
At Beverford no one is left behind or lost in the crowd. We have various additional support services that allow students to make growth in their learning. One example is a qualified reading recovery teacher who delivers an intervention program for students having difficulty in Reading & Writing.
The three dimensions of English are Reading and Viewing, Writing and Speaking & Listening. At Beverford, students complete two hours of explicit Literacy instruction each morning.
