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.

CHILD SAFETY – Our Commitment to Child Safety at CLPS
Canadian Lead Primary School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. Canadian Lead Primary School has zero tolerance for child abuse.
Curriculum is ‘what’ is taught and Pedagogy is ‘how’. At Canadian Lead PS we used a balance of all ten of the High Impact Teaching Strategies. These are evidence-based strategies that experienced teachers select from depending on the lesson, the stage of learning, and the needs of students. They include: Setting Goals, Structuring Lessons, Explicit Teaching, Worked Examples, Collaborative Learning, Multiple Exposures, Questioning, Feedback, Metacognitive Strategies, and Differentiated Teaching. At Canadian Lead PS we use a mix of explicit teaching and less formal approaches, for example, the Discoveries program in Foundation to Year 2. This play-based approach allows students to learn through interacting with their peers.
Assessment FOR learning – occurs when teachers use inferences about student progress to inform their teaching.
Assessment AS learning – occurs when students reflect on and monitor their progress to inform their future learning goals.
Assessment OF learning – occurs when teachers use evidence of student learning to make judgements on student achievement against goals and standards.
Reports are issued to parents/carers twice per year using a five-point rating scale to show student progress and achievement. Parent Teacher Interviews will be held twice per year in 2020 to give all our parents and carers the opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher to discuss their progress, successes, learning goals for the coming term. These face-to-face meetings help build on the already strong home-school relationships that exist at Canadian lead PS.
