    OneSchool supports students’ learning journey across schools

    The Department of Education and Training’s secure, web-based OneSchool system has created more opportunities for Queensland state school teachers to help students by providing a rich picture of each student’s progress from Prep to Year 12.

    Education and Training Minister Geoff Wilson said the information management system was particularly beneficial when students moved between state schools in Queensland.

    “The students’ record moves with them, so at the touch of a button, their new teachers can quickly access a comprehensive record of the students’ learning strengths, challenges and achievements,” Mr Wilson said.

    “Access to the new students’ educational history helps teachers ensure the students’ education continues to maintain momentum.

    “OneSchool is also beneficial when students move from state primary schools to state high schools because their school history moves with them.

    “OneSchool is helping teachers more easily identify and address students’ learning needs and opportunities for enrichment.

    “This is a significant resource that is opening up more learning opportunities for state school students across Queensland.”

    Mr Wilson said teachers were also using OneSchool to produce student academic reports and develop curriculum unit plans.

    “This secure and safe resource ensures only authorised school staff can view information about the students enrolled at their school,” Mr Wilson said.

    “Students have access only to OneSchool’s separate student module to plan their future education and career pathways.

    “More than 10,000 students have now completed their Senior Education and Training Plans using this module.”

    Mr Wilson said use of OneSchool was also assisting communication between state school teachers and students, and teachers and parents.

    “The availability of comprehensive information supports informed discussion with parents and students, which will ultimately help to improve students’ outcomes,” he said.

    “OneSchool is designed to help more students reach their potential.

    “It is also important to the department’s endeavours to deliver effective and engaging educational programs to ensure that all state school students are learning and achieving.

    “OneSchool is significant to Queensland’s aims to improve academic outcomes for every child.”
