In 2013 we continue to implement the Australian Curriculum.

At Tailem Bend Primary School, teachers plan, teach, assess and report (A-E or word equivalent) to parents using the Australian Curriculum (content and achievement standards) in:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • History

The Australian Curriculum includes 7 General Capabilities:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Information and communication technology (ICT) competencies
  • Critical and creative thinking
  • Ethical behaviours
  • Personal and social competencies
  • Intercultural understandings

The 3 Cross Curriculum Priorities are:

  • Sustainability
  • Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture

The following curriculum areas are taught at Tailem Bend Primary and will gradually move under the Australian Curriculum framework:

  • Health and physical education – specialist teacher
  • The Arts
  • Languages (Chinese) – specialist teacher
  • Geography

Music is taught by a specialist teacher and students have the opportunity of learning an instrument through the Instrumental Music Services.

Reporting to Parents

  • Parent/Caregiver Acquaintance Night term 1
  • Written reports terms 2 and 4

Parents/caregivers are encouraged to make contact with the class teacher throughout the year should they have a concern or query.
