Curriculum

Avondale Primary School provides every student with a guaranteed and viable curriculum.

 

Using the Victorian Curriculum as our starting point teachers do the following:

  • develop comprehensive learning plans
  • apply teaching and learning practices that maximise student learning
  • use a variety of assessment strategies to assess student progress.

 

Teachers use a range of assessment strategies to:

  • inform teachers and students about learning progress
  • form the basis for developing further programs
  • track student progress.

 

Student Learning
The following principles support Avondale Primary School’s teaching and learning.

 

We believe that children learn best when:

  • teachers know and value each student
  • students feel confident and safe
  • lessons are interesting, engaging and challenging
  • there are opportunities to share and discuss
  • lessons are planned by teachers and learning goals are explicit
  • they are given constructive feedback about their work
  • high standards are set and effort is recognised
  • they are supported to take responsibility for their own learning
  • imagination and creativity are encouraged
  • technology is used appropriately and reflects community standards
  • they learn problem solving skills and strategies
  • they learn to be organised, persistent and confident
  • the learning environment is encouraging and respectful
  • achievement and effort are recognised and encouraged
  • teachers recognise prior learning
  • parents and teachers work together
