Investing for Success (I4S)

In 2016 and 2017, $480 million will be made available to Queensland state schools through the 'Investing for Success' (I4S) initiative.
Previously known as the Great Results Guarantee, the new name reflects the change in funding allocation built on a new needs-based method to better direct funding to students and schools requiring the most support.

Purpose - Investing for Success

State schools will use Investing for Success (I4S) funding to support students, particularly those most in need, to achieve improved outcomes at all levels of schooling.
To provide surety and continuity of school programs, all state schools will be allocated at least the same amount of Investing for Success funding in 2016 and 2017 as they received through the 2015 Great Results Guarantee.


During 2015, we have focused on maximising the benefits of this funding for our students.  After reviewing our Great Results Guarantee agreement, it is clear that we are on track to meet or exceed our targeted student outcomes. We continue to implement our strategies to ensure that every student succeeds.
Strategies implemented include:
·         Enhanced teacher capability in explicit teaching and consolidating reading approached through coaching and mentoring.
·         Particiaption in regular student performance reviews and data analysis using diagnostic assessment tools and class markbooks.
·         Refinement of Georgetown SS whole school reading approach and Pedagogical Framework for consistency and alignement with school practices.
·         Refinement of Georgetown SS intervention policy and creation of learning plans for every identified student.
·         Allocated support time for identified students.
