Ingham High ensures quality educational outcomes for all through quality teaching. Ingham High values diversity, where we can live together, learn together and achieve together.
Through the renewal of the Middle Phase Curriculum, the school recognized the importance of getting the middle years of schooling right for the sake of the students’ future learning. The renewal recognized the special needs of students across Years 4-9. Within a drive for rigor and a coherent message about curriculum, pedagogy and assessment, the school focused on developing a culture around assessment, moderation and reporting.
The future will continue to see:-
* Teachers developing high-level assessment skills;
* A moderation process (Years 8-10) that ensures comparability of results;
* A standards map (Years 8-10) that provides a mechanism for reporting to parents; and
* Assessment ‘for and of’ learning to both improve and measure standards.
The school continues to develop positive relationships, and productive partnerships with parents and the wider community to build ownership and understanding of the school’s direction and achievements.
This enables the school to be responsive to the needs of the local community and to provide multiple pathways for further learning or earning.
