At Eltham North we take great pride in our curriculum. Our Learning and Teaching Programs are designed to encourage and promote a love of life long learning. The Victorian Curriculum forms the basis of the school's comprehensive and integrated curriculum programs. Whilst a wide variety of additional resources materials and texts are used by teachers, the school's curriculum structure and focus is based on these documents.
The Victorian Curriculum is the basis for curriculum planning and development in Victorian schools and as such, it is our core resource in teaching and curriculum at Eltham North Primary School.
The Victorian Curriculum provides a stable foundation for whole schooling curriculum and assessment planning. It incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian standards and priorities. The curriculum includes a strong focus on the foundational skills of literacy and numeracy and on personal and social skills, thinking skills and new areas of learning such as computational thinking. The Victorian Curriculum gives students the skills they need for work and life: literacy, numeracy, scientific knowledge and skills, resilience, respectful relationships, the use of digital technologies and the capacity for critical and creative thinking and expression.
