Our First Aid Business Operations moved to Melbourne, Victoria 19th Sept 2023 and are being handled by Trusted First Aid (Incorporating School First Aid).
For First Aid - Please go to: https://www.trustedfirstaid.com.au/ 

We're minimising any disruption for all first aid customers.

The new Trusted First Aid (Incorporating School First Aid) site will allow you to log in to your account there with your same username and password. All the products are the same, with the same codes you are used to, along with the same processing, invoicing, emailing and delivery service. Your Reward Points will be the same. We've even doubled every customer's existing Reward Points by preserving them here (for our educational supplies) and applying every customer's existing Reward Points value to the new first aid service centre. When you start ordering first aid items on the new website, the only main change will be the new Trusted First Aid (Incorporating School First Aid) contacts and payment details on their website and invoices.

We emailed Newsletter 13 to all our newsletter subscribers about this change. Here I want to take this opportunity to thank all our valued first aid customers, over 35+ years, and express the importance of now buying from the Team at Trusted First Aid (Incorporating School First Aid). There are lot of opportunities for the first aid operations to expand but I know the same dedicated service you've received from us will be forwarded to you by the new Melbourne based Team. It was a hard decision for me to put the first aid operations into other hands but it will allow me and my sons to further develop the next stage of our classroom based teacher tests and resources. We know thousands of people use our free Basic First Aid Notes, so you will continue to see a hosted link for them here for several months but they are also transferring to Trusted First Aid (Incorporating School First Aid).

Waddington Reading and Spelling Tests

Waddington Diagnostic Standard and Advanced Reading and Spelling Tests 1 & 2

Make 2024 and 2025 Count! The most important testing a teacher can do to efficiently define student abilities and quickly establish structured programs.

Australia's most reliable reading and spelling tests for quickly and efficiently pin-pointing a student's critical reading and spelling age as well as diagnosing foundation skills and highlighting phases to be targeted for teaching and learning programs. Proven across three decades, this Third Edition holds data well established before the pandemic disrupted student learning. There's no other classroom teacher-based testing device more efficient, or more detailed in diagnosis of reading and spelling, so easily administered in under one hour. These tests put teachers back in control of student testing and diagnosis where individual student ability is assessed by the professional classroom practitioner and not left to computers with unknown/detached construction or methodologies devoid of valid standardized processes.

Includes advanced reading tests and advanced spelling test sections with references to explicit teaching strategies and follow-up student learning resource materials.

- 11th February 2024 A Grattan Institute report says one third of Australia's 4 million school children are being failed by an education system that persists with discredited theories to teach reading. Governments and school systems are being urged to commit to what's known as "structured literacy", a mix of direct instruction and phonics. Report from an example school.

- 26th January 2024 Newsweek Report - "Students Who Still Take Notes by Hand Better Off, Say Neurologists." Further evidence in support of my belief that student handwriting is extraordinarily important, especially in the learning to read and write stages, and must never be replaced only by electronic devices.

Given the massive disruption to student learning across Australia due to the pandemic, as evidenced by;
- Late 2023 NAPLAN results highlighted one in three school children are not meeting literacy and numeracy expectations
- Early 2023 reports showing schools going backwards nationally and that the 2018 national education strategy doing little to improve student learning outcomes in literacy and mathematics
Students flat-lining and going backwards since 2011 
Other recent NAPLAN reports showing the gap in results had widened over time between metropolitan, regional and remote students including high and low socio-educational groups. 

Waddington reliable classroom-based, teacher-driven testing is more important than ever before. Experienced teachers know how well they quickly and efficiently identify and diagnose student skill foundations, without solely labelling children, ranking schools or leaving teachers in the lurch when difficult student cases emerge.
