Consistent curriculum, planning and implementation to improve learning is achieved through an agreed curriculum framework using the Australian Curriculum. We implement the schools key curriculum areas of Communication, Literacy and Numeracy using the Australian Curriculum for English and Maths, C2C for Students with Disabilities and the using the General Capabilities. Stage Specific Program learning intents are developed based on student needs from the Personal and Social Capabilities and the syllabus contexts of Science and History of the Australian Curriculum.
The Early Years Framework forms the basis of stage specific learning in the Junior School and for older students where differentiation and adjustments indicate.
