The MYLNS initiative (Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support), is a state government funded initiative that, provides intensive teaching support to government secondary school students who are at risk of finishing school without the literacy and numeracy skills they need for future work and study. This initiative seeks to support and build on the work that schools are already doing to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes for all students, by providing additional teaching support to prioritised students as part of a whole-school approach. Students who are prioritised have been identified through Naplan results and teacher judgement. At BCC, in 2023, students in Years 8 ,9 and 10, identified to receive MYLNS support, will have a second specialist teacher in their English and Maths classes. Students in the MYLNS classes, in Years 8, will also receive an extra Literacy and Numeracy class a week to build on skills to support Maths capabilities.
