Learning support

We monitor each student's progress and provide additional learning support if this is required.

Our school uses learning programs and specialised staff where needed and we work in partnership with parents and carers to assist students who have special learning needs.

Our school is committed to working with Aboriginal parents and community members in developing personalised plans for our Aboriginal students.

CHS Quicksmart

Since 2014, selected Year 7 and 8 students at Corrimal HS have been participating in the QuickSmart program to help them improve their basic numeracy skills. In that time, NAPLAN results have consistently improved for Corrimal HS students who have participated in the QuickSmart program.

The program has been developed by the University of New England and has been successfully delivered to thousands of students throughout Australia over the past 16 years.

At Corrimal HS, QuickSmart aims to improve the numeracy experiencing learning problems or delays and, hence, not achieving their academic potential. Participating students may have varying levels of learning difficulties because of a variety of problems, including  knowledge gaps, lack of practice anxiety, or  low confidence.

Students attend three 30-minute QuickSmart lessons per week, attending in pairs and taught by trained QuickSmart tutors. The activities used include identification of strategies for improving multiplication and division, flashcards, speed sheets, problem solving and relevant games. Data is collected through the use of software that measures accuracy against time.
