Early Action for Success (EA4S)


The Department of Education and Communities aims to improve student's performance through a targeted approach to learning and the strategy that is planned to achieve this is Early Action for Success (EA4S). Coonabarabran Public School has recently become an EA4S school.

The EA4S strategy uses the evidence that well-developed literacy and numeracy skills are essential to students' success at school and fundamental to improving their life chances in a diverse and ever-changing world. A key feature of this strategy is the appointment of an Instructional Leader of Literacy and Numeracy.

Mrs Cox has been fortunate enough to be appointed the Instructional Leader role at CPS as well as at Baradine Central School. She will work with teachers in the K-2 to assist in the organisation and delivery of High Quality Professional Learning and also implement  Personalised Learning Plans for students who have specific learning needs. It is a very hands-on position that has Mrs Cox working in classrooms, with small groups and individual students. A lot of her time is taken up with collecting data on students and presenting this data in a way to make it meaningful to the teachers and students.
