Curriculum overview

Curriculum Overview

At Nailsworth Primary School the school curriculum is the mandated Australian Curriculum.

The Australian Curriculum sets out, through content descriptions and achievement standards, what students should be taught and achieve as they progress through school. It includes learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities that together support 21st-century learning.

The Australian Curriculum is presented as a developmental sequence of learning from Foundation - Year 10,

The three-dimensional design of the Foundation – Year 10 Australian Curriculum recognises the importance of disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding alongside general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities.

Disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding are described in the eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum:

English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages. 

In South Australia, it is also expected that all students are taught a Child Protection Curriculum.
