The Port Hedland SOTA Strategic Plan provides direction and guidance for the school in appointing priorities and implementing strategies and programs to achieve set targets. These are ambitious and exact high academic expectations from our students. Informed judgements about the standards of student achievement and the effectiveness of school processes in maximizing student achievement are regularly and consistently made.

We monitor each student’s achievements using a case management approach across all learning areas. Data collection from system level, standardized and curriculum-based assessments is utilized to inform teacher judgements and form the foundation when setting high expectations and targets for our students. Teachers meet with the support teacher learning (STL) and principal to assess student performance and then set individualized targets. Teachers and the STL work collaboratively with home tutors to plan and implement strategies to build student capacity.
