Staff return for school development days (SDD) Students in Years 1-6 start on Friday, 29 January 2021 To support a strong start to 2021, school staff will now have two (2) school development days at the beginning of Term 1 instead of at the end of Term 4.. School development days are used by schools to improve the skills of our teachers, school leaders and school administrative support staff. They improve the learning outcomes of students by: providing targeted professional learning activities aligned to school strategic directions and Department of Education priorities enabling whole school planning and enhancing teacher quality, school leadership and management practices implementing legislative and policy requirements. Examples of school development day programs include: analysing student and school data to identify student needs and provide a focus for teaching induction and mentoring programs to support teachers new to their school identifying interagency support that is available to implement case management programs analysing school welfare support initiatives to meet student welfare needs using quality school learning models to enhance teaching and learning programs, assessments and classroom practice quality teaching in the digital age and incorporating digital components into teaching and learning programs developing programs to help students with special learning needs.
