The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is responsible for the development of the Australian Curriculum from Foundation (Reception) to Year 12. Their webpage has links for parents and you can access many general aspects of the Australian Curriculum.

The Australian Curriculum sets out, through content descriptions and achievement standards, what students should achieve as they progress through school. It provides the frame of reference for “what” we want our students to learn and the South Australian Teaching for Effective Learning (TfEL) Framework provides the learning principles that inform “how” we design and implement quality teaching and learning.

The achievement standards of the Australian Curriculum require teachers to design assessment and make judgements of students achievements against these common reference points. Teachers report to these in bi-annual written reports and parent/teacher interviews. Families are encouraged to make appointments with their child’s teacher to discuss the teaching and learning program.
