Our Primary School Approach

Our schools follow the local education authority curriculum guidelines. Generally, students are enrolled after completing their earlier years enrolled with a local state school.

In primary school, there is a major focus on using assessment information to establish what students can do. This information is used to plan the next teaching and learning steps. Most programs therefore are differentiated and there is a wide approach to how students learn and are taught.

Our classes are small and of mixed ability therefore the movement in teaching practice from teacher directed to teacher as facilitator/guide fits well with our school structurally and with our goal for developing self-directed learners with the skills, knowledge, attitudes and values for life long learning.
