The Victorian F-10 Curriculum sets out what every student should learn during their first 11 years of schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for lifelong learning, social development and active and informed citizenship. The Victorian F-10 Curriculum incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards. At Inglewood Primary School we strive to teach students as individuals using data to determine where each child is at with their learning and then tailoring our teaching to the individual needs. This enables all children to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. Students participate in daily two-hour Literacy and one hour Numeracy learning sessions and also complete Physical Education sessions every day as per Department of Education requirements. Students have weekly sessions in Art, Sport, Digital Technology, Music and Auslan and complete fortnightly sessions of Cooking and MARC Van.
A wide range of DET and school-based student learning data is collected as per our Assessment Schedule. Student literacy and numeracy data is analysed at a whole school level, to identify individual student need and well as school wide trends. Essential Assessment literacy and numeracy data is collected as a pre-test and post-test benchmark. Whole school data provided by DET on the Panorama platform is analysed by all staff to ensure every student is working at their point of need.
Our school values of Respect Achievement and Community are acknowledged at fortnightly assemblies with the presentation of Student of the Fortnight awards for each of our three grades to promote being respectful, valuing achievement and contributing to your community. Senior students have the opportunity to lead whole school assemblies each fortnight, an opportunity to lead ‘Library for Littlies’ sessions every Wednesday morning, an opportunity to show leadership through our P/1 Buddy Program and lead Community Projects that are taken on each year to address a need in our school or in our wider community.
Senior students visit our local Aged Care Hostel each fortnight and work with the residents on fun, engaging activities to build empathy and social skills.
Senior students attend Young Leaders programs to encourage them to be outward thinking young citizens. Senior students have a wide range of whole school jobs that are completed on a daily basis to encourage whole school contributions and appreciate what is done for them by those around them.
Junior students visit the local Kindergarten for visiting artists or kinder based activities to build connections with students who may be attending as Prep students the following year.
