Teaching and Learning - The Australian Curriculum

 

The Australian Curriculum sets consistent high standards for what all young Australians should learn as they progress through schooling. It prepares Australia’s next generation for the future and lays the building blocks for generations to come.

The Australian Curriculum focuses on Learning Area Content and Achievement Standards. These describe what students will learn and teachers will teach. It also gives attention to seven General Capabilities that are important for life and work in the 21st century. The General Capabilities and the Cross-Curriculum Priorities are not added as additional subjects. They are dealt with, where relevant, through the learning area content on which the curriculum is built.

Dawson Park Primary School has fully implemented Phase 1 of the Australian Curriculum. Phase 1 includes English, Mathematics, Science and History. All classes from Kindy through to Year 7 follow whole school planning documents which reflect the key skills and content of the Australian Curriculum in a succinct, structured and progressive way - this ensures a consistent approach across the school.
