Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support (MYLNS)
MYLNS is a State Government funded initiative that focuses on improving literacy and numeracy. Our Year 10 students receiving additional support have been identified by the Department based on their previous NAPLAN results, which indicate that they are currently sitting below the National Minimum Standard (NMS) for literacy and numeracy. The program aims to ensure that their skills in these areas are at or above standard upon completion of their studies.
Students within this program will have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) developed by the MYLNS team. Students set specific literacy and numeracy goals, and the MYLNS team support students in achieving these goals. The type of support that the MYLNS team provide includes, but is not limited to, in class support, explicit skill development during tutorial time, and CICO style check in and communication home.
The MYLNS team also work closely with Sub-schools, Wellbeing, Student Operations Team (SOT), Learning Coordinators (LCs) and region around this work. Students are receiving this support on top of other supports already in place for them.
