This week it was announced that the successful LIFT Initiative will not only continue to be delivered but will now be extended to a further 29 schools – this means 109 schools will receive targeted support through the relaunch of the initiative.

LIFT commenced in schools at the beginning of 2016 with a purpose of supporting schools to build capacity in the areas of family engagement, literacy and numeracy. The initiative will now continue in 2020 with a continued focus on family engagement and oral language to support the development of literacy and numeracy skills.

LIFT has a focus to engage families of students from Kindergarten to Year 2 and support them as active partners in their child’s learning. This is achieved through partnerships between the school, family and community for improved learning outcomes.

The initiative provides opportunities for families to develop a deeper understanding of literacy and numeracy learning in order to positively influence their child’s education.

A key benefits that schools have seen as a result of LIFT is the building of relationships between staff and families with the child’s learning at the centre of conversations.

In determining the additional schools that will receive support for this initiative a methodology based on an Early Years Literacy Needs Index was used. This Index uses data from a number of key early years indicators to determine those schools that need the most support in the areas of literacy in the early years, to support improved student outcomes.
