Octopus: How it works and how to access it

Assessment at LLV is directly driven by outcomes set out in the Australian Curriculum.

Learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge or skills students develop in each subject by the end of a Stage. Our reporting dashboard, Octopus draws in the assessment of each of these outcomes within a year, to provide a live and continuous picture of student progress which goes beyond a single summative grade, bi-annually.

Learning Guides and Beyond Program

Every student at LLV is a member of a Pod. Each pod has a ‘Learning Guide’ – a teacher who is responsible for each student in the Pod. The Learning Guide plays a critical role in the educational model and wellbeing framework of the school.

The Learning Guide is the key conduit between the child and home, they know and support the student to grow academically, personally and emotionally throughout their time at LLV.

We have and expect our students to have a growth mindset.
