The Arthurs Creek Primary School curriculum draws on elements of the Victorian Curriculum to develop and implement a curriculum that is meaningful for students, with a strong commitment and focus on Literacy and Numeracy.
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 sets out what every student should learn during their first eleven years of schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship.
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 sets out a single, coherent and comprehensive set of content descriptions and associated achievement standards to enable teachers to plan, monitor, assess and report on the learning achievement of every student.
The staff at Arthurs Creek Primary School have further analysed the priorities outlined in the Victorian Curriculum to develop our own unique Literacy and Numeracy Planners that outline the content taught at each of the Victorian Curriculum Levels.
Staff work together to align the curriculum so that it is sequential throughout the years of primary school. Teachers work together to develop high quality teaching and learning programs that reflect high impact teaching strategies. Student progress is closely tracked to ensure all students are demonstrating strong learning gains. Learning Intentions and Success Criteria are developed for all sessions, making the focus and indicators of success of the lesson visible to the students. Feedback is integral in this process, where teachers both give and receive feedback from students.
