Primary School

Our primary school program offers students the opportunity to learn and develop with peers in their phase of learning.

 

Early Years Phase of Learning: caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 1. The Early Years classroom philosophy of ‘Early Intervention’ is the underpinning focus of the delivery of teaching and learning programs. The school is working towards the successful implementation of the National Quality Standards (NQS) and uses the NQS Developmental Milestones as a guide to understanding our students’ individual abilities. Every student has an Individual Education Plan developed through positive partnerships with families and key stakeholders to ensure the targeted objectives are achievable. Our teachers and support staff also deliver a well-rounded curriculum including Functional Literacy and Numeracy, Science, Art, Music, Health, Physical Education, Protective Behaviours, ICT, Hydrotherapy and essential individualised therapy plans.

 

Primary Phase of Learning: caters for students from Year 2 - Year 6. Every student works toward achievement of goals as set out in their Individual Education Plan. Classroom teachers access the Western Australian Curriculum, Curriculum Framework, Special Education Needs Assessment Tool and Abilities Based Learning Education, Western Australia (ABLEWA) within their everyday teaching and learning practices to ensure they provide the best education for each student in their class.

 

Staff members are also provided with many opportunities to work with key stakeholders such as Speech Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists and other external service providers to ensure every aspect of the students’ needs are being met throughout the school day.
