College Learning Plan
In 2021 Sydney Secondary College implemented a College Learning Plan (CLP) to support all 2519 students to individually reflect on their academic progress, supporting students to set goals in identified areas of growth in response to their semester reports.
The CLP process will assist students to reflect on their academic achievement both individually and within their cohort. Students will attend a presentation tailored to their year group, enabling them to contextualise their report, completing a self reflection activity using their individual subject grades, 'Commitment to Learning' behaviour descriptors and teacher comments.
After the presentation, students will attend a coaching session to review:
Any challenges they face to academic achievement
The strengths they have to support ongoing growth
Their academic goals, both short term and long term
Students goals and strategies for success will be recorded in a College Learning Plan in Sentral and will facilitate an ongoing conversation for all students and teachers focused on student identified areas of improvement.
The CLP will ensure that all Sydney Secondary College students are active participants in their learning, having set individualised goals in response to identified strengths and weaknesses based on their report. Additionally, the CLP will further support teachers in developing their knowledge of their students and how they learn.
This process will be completed each reporting cycle.
