East Para Primary School

The Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum has been implemented progressively in South Australia schools since 2012.

At East Para Primary School we have implemented and report against the 'Achievement Standards' of the Australia Curriculum in the mandated area of

English Science
Maths History

As a school we have also committed to familiarise and trial the following curriculum areas to enable us to report against the 'Achievement Standards' in 2015.   

Geography Civics and Citizenship
Business and Economics The Arts

Our Non Instructional Teachers in Japanese ad Physical Education have also engaged in trialling and reporting against the 'Achievement Standards' in their area of expertise.

When assessing and reporting to parents and children the following criteria applies.

Excellent Achievement of what is expected at the child's current year level.
Good Achievement of what is expected at the child's current year level.
Satisfactory Achievement of what is expected at the child's current year level.
Partial Achievement of what is expected at the child's current year level.
Minimal Achievement of what is expected at the child's current year level.

Thus a child who receives a Satisfactory level of achievement has the knowledge and understanding required at their current year level.
