Ranging from 5 to 12 years old
Our main aim for students in their primary-aged years is to make school a fun and engaging environment where students feel comfortable and enjoy learning. Students are respected as individuals and are encouraged to engage in a range of learning experiences in order to extend their interests and skills.
Communication development is a high priority, enabling students to further express themselves through multimodal communication including gesture, speech, Key Word Sign and visuals.
We value and promote a collaborative working partnership with families; in recognition that respectful and caring relationships with children and families will foster and deliver improved learning for children. Learning experiences are designed to expand children’s knowledge and skills and promote their health, safety and wellbeing.
Teaching and Learning Programs in the Primary Years will reflect a comprehensive curriculum, focusing on the foundation skills and knowledge for future learning. Priority learning is personalised for students and documented within Individual Learning Plans.
Within the Primary Years, Inquiry learning topics, are delivered through an integrated curriculum model. Student’s strengths are central with “hands on” learning experiences promoting curiosity, co-operation and confidence in order for students to grow as learners and achieve success. A scope and sequence of learning topics supports the development of skills and knowledge across broad areas of the curriculum.
Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, and Speech Pathologists, Teachers and Teacher Assistants work collaboratively to adapt and extend programs to ensure the students are continually developing their skills and abilities.
