In 2017, Moorooka State School staff will continue to plan, teach, assess and report on the Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, Geography and History across the Prep to Year 6 year levels.
Teachers continue to use the Queensland Essential Learnings and Standards to plan, teach, assess and report on learning areas where the Australian Curriculum is not yet available.
The Shape of the Australian Curriculum (v3.0 and v4.0) describes the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority's (ACARA) commitment to:
- supporting equity of access to the Australian Curriculum for all learners
- developing a curriculum that will equip all young Australians with the essential skills, knowledge and capabilities to thrive and compete in a globalised world.
All young Australians include students with multiple, diverse and changing needs that are shaped by individual learning histories and abilities as well as personal, cultural and language backgrounds and socio-economic factors. Students with specific educational needs include but are not limited to:
- students with disabilities that have a physiological basis
- students with educational needs arising primarily from socioeconomic, cultural and/or linguistic factors where there may be some form of educational disadvantage
- students whose difficulties in accessing learning do not appear to be directly or primarily attributable to educational disadvantage arising from impairment, or to socioeconomic, cultural and/or linguistic factors or psychological needs
- students with identifiably different patterns of educational development and orientation.
