LITERACY AND NUMERACY STRATEGY
2017–2020

There are five key elements of the Strategy
A continued focus on
intervention in the early
years of schooling
Clear guidance on
explicit teaching and
better, faster diagnostic
assessments
More support for
literacy and numeracy in
secondary schools
Quality training for
teacher education
students in literacy
and numeracy
Rigorous evaluation to focus investment and effort on what works
A
continued focus on intervention in the early years of schooling
Provide $340 million over the next four years to
maintain and extend the focus on early intervention
and instructional leadership in 673 schools across
the state
Maintain a focus on diagnostic assessment, differentiated teaching and tiered interventions
Enable other government schools to ‘opt-in’ to the early years model
of instructional leadership support, including those schools wanting to
use instructional leaders in Years 3-6.
Provide all teachers with new tools — literacy and numeracy learning progressions and online diagnostic assessments
Clear guidance on explicit teaching and better, faster diagnostic assessments
Provide parents with clearer, more regular and more immediate information about their children’s progress
Replace the current NSW literacy and numeracy continua with evidence-based literacy and numeracy learning progressions that describe the key elements of students’ literacy and numeracy
development from Kindergarten to Year 10.
Make quality diagnostic, online and on-demand literacy and numeracy assessments, linked to the learning progressions available to all NSW schools.
2017
Literacy and numeracy progressions and revised
Best Start Kindergarten assessment trialled in the
673 Action Plan schools.
2018
Final literacy and numeracy progressions and revised
Best Start Kindergarten assessment available to all NSW schools.
2017 – 2020
Online literacy and numeracy assessments made
progressively available.
More support for literacy and numeracy in secondary schools
Develop an online Best Start Year 7 literacy and numeracy assessment for use by English and mathematics teachers within the first five weeks of Year 7.
Develop new mathematics and English syllabuses for Years 11 and
12 with a stronger emphasis on literacy and numeracy development.
Develop a framework for teaching and assessing writing in NSW from Kindergarten to Year 10 linked to the new literacy learning progression.
Provide teachers with professional learning opportunities for teaching and assessing writing in secondary schools across Key Learning Areas based on the new framework.
Quality training for teacher education
students in literacy and numeracy
Develop and make available sample literacy assessment tasks and annotated and graded work samples for ITE providers
Develop and make available comprehensive
support materials, including a description of essential literacy teaching skills and an explicit guide to teaching phonics to students in Kindergarten in Year 2.
Develop and make available specific support materials and identify targeted professional learning with a focus on mathematics in
Kindergarten to Year 6
Provide teacher education students with a guide to existing resources and exemplars illustrating ways numeracy can be addressed across the
Kindergarten to Year 6 curriculum.
Rigorous evaluation to focus investment and effort on what works
Commission an independent evaluation of the next four years of the
Kindergarten to Year 2 early intervention strategy
Continue to evaluate specific literacy and numeracy programs used commonly
in NSW schools.
In 2017, government schools that have previously used their allocations for Reading Recovery may continue to do so, or they may choose to allocate that funding to another literacy intervention.
Use the new online, diagnostic literacy and numeracy assessments
2017 – 2020

Kindergarten to Year 2 early intervention strategy.
