Every child brings a different set of experiences, knowledge and skills to school with them, and understanding these is essential to planning their individual learning paths. From the earliest school days and throughout their time at school, teachers use information about individual students’ capabilities and needs to plan for students’ learning so as to engage them in rich learning experiences, developing the vital skills for flourishing – now and in future years. By sharing information about learning development, teachers engage parents as active participants in their children’s education. At the other end of schooling, teachers and schools support students to make successful transitions to future learning and employment, with the skills to make informed contributions as citizens and leaders.
