Curriculum - Australian Curriculum

Northern Christian School implements the Australian Curriculum.

The Following information is taken from the above website.

The Australian Curriculum sets the expectations for what all Australian students should be taught, regardless of where they live or their background. For F-10, it means that students now have access to the same content, and their achievement can be judged against consistent national standards. Schools and teachers are responsible for the organisation of learning and they will choose contexts for learning and plan learning in ways that best meet their students’ needs and interests.

Using the Australian Curriculum to meet the learning needs of all students

Teachers refer to the Australian Curriculum learning area content that aligns with their students’ chronological age as the starting point in planning teaching and learning programs.

Teachers take account of the range of their students’ current levels of learning, strengths, goals and interests, and personalise learning where necessary through adjustments to the teaching and learning program, according to individual learning need, by:

  • drawing from learning area content at different levels along the Foundation to Year 10 sequence to personalise age-equivalent learning area content
  • using the general capabilities and/or cross-curriculum priorities to adjust the learning focus of the age-equivalent learning area content
  • aligning individual learning goals with age-equivalent learning area content


Teachers assess students’ progress through the Australian Curriculum in relation to achievement standards. Some students’ progress will be assessed in relation to their individual learning goals.
