Curriculum

Aberfeldie Primary School provides a comprehensive and challenging curriculum with a focus on achieving high standards in Literacy, Numeracy and world knowledge. An Integrated Inquiry approach is used across the school to encourage students to ask key questions for investigation on topics.

The school has developed scope and sequence of topics identifying the appropriate conceptual ideas important for students to learn that is in line with the AusVELS.

Our curriculum uses the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) with the introduction of the Australian Curriculum (AusVELS) in; English, Mathematics, Histroy and Science. The F-10 Australian Curriculum sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities important for all Australian students.

Teachers use the standards to plan teaching programs and use them as the basis of assessment and reporting of student achievement. The standards are set at a challenging competence level and are based on research indicating what students at that level are developmentally capable of achieving.
