Curriculum planning at Eltham North Primary School is based on the delivery of the Victorian Curriculum to all students. Eltham North Primary School believes that collaborative planning of curriculum and its documentation is essential for the school to deliver a comprehensive curriculum program. This aligns with a curriculum scope and sequence that promotes detailed sequential and engaging curriculum delivery.
The strategic plan defines the core purpose of the school as providing:
Teaching and learning teams are supported by school improvement teams in literacy, numeracy, ICT, science, welfare, assessment and reporting. A member of each teaching and learning team is represented on the school improvement teams with all team leaders being members of the assessment and reporting school improvement team.
The leadership group is focused on a four year planning cycle and continuous analysis of data sources around school improvement. At this level there is a focus on long term planning around fiscal management, workforce planning and school structures.
The school has developed a structured approach to curriculum planning that ensures a shared vision within the school on curriculum development, common documentation and shared understanding of the whole school curriculum by teachers and parents. This is achieved through:
The school improvement teams have detailed action plans that include the review of their curriculum against the new Victorian Curriculum and a particular focus on the implementation of the Australian Curriculum in English and Mathematics.
