Our school

Inala State School has a day 8 enrolment of 535 students for 2018. 
Our school priorities are:
·      Reading
·      Attendance and
·      Writing (RAW).
Reading at Inala State School is underpinned by the work of Gail Boushey and Joan Moser.  The ‘CAFÉ’ Menu breaks the teaching of reading into components, Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency and Expanding Vocabulary.  Each component uses distinct strategies to develop proficient readers.  We understand that different students have different needs as readers, however all readers need instruction and support to enable them to become more independent and self-reflective in their school work.
Attendance is tracked daily at Inala State School with parents/carers informed, on the day, via SMS if their child is absent.  Through “Attendance Blast” during our weekly assembly, the top three classes for the week are acknowledged for their contribution to our whole school attendance rate.  Classes and individual students are also acknowledged and rewarded for their fantastic attendance efforts on a term by term basis.  Students and teachers collaboratively track their attendance using a “Rocket” visual, present in every classroom to support students to achieve their personalised attendance goal.
Writing is developed through the work of Australian Literacy Champion Jen McVeity.  Her “7 Steps to Writing Success” framework places an emphasis on student talking, group brainstorming and short, practical activities that engage our developing writers.  The four “best practice” principles of chunk learning, repetition and practice, think first – write second and verbal is vital are utilised by our teaching staff.  Inala State School students are supported in the development of essential and real world literacy and writing skills.
