Curriculum and Learning at Flemington Primary School
All learning is celebrated at Flemington Primary School. All of our Collaborative Teaching Teams develop a comprehensive curriculum that allows every child to engage with their learning. We have a culture of high expectations and work collaboratively with children and their families so that every child at Flemington can live our motto and be the best that they can be!
The Victorian Curriculum, are addressed explicitly in the content of the learning areas. They play a significant role in realising the goals set out in the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008) – that all young people in Australia should be supported to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.
The Melbourne Declaration identifies essential skills for twenty-first century learners – in literacy, numeracy, information and communication technology (ICT), thinking, creativity, teamwork and communication. It describes individuals who can manage their own wellbeing, relate well to others, make informed decisions about their lives, become citizens who behave with ethical integrity, relate to and communicate across cultures, work for the common good and act with responsibility at local, regional and global levels.
Curriculum at FPS has a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy skills. Other curriculum areas include STEM subjects (Science, Technology and Mathematics), Health and Physical Education, the Arts, Music, Chinese and Library.
Teachers at FPS are wonderful, nurturing and caring educators, who model lifelong learning. All FPS teachers work in Collaborative Teams where they undertake professional learning on a weekly basis with the support of a Leading Teacher, Principal or Educational Consultant. Teachers have access to coaching and professional learning and development is a priority for every teacher. Every child’s academic progress is closely monitored and teachers implement best practice, using a variety of evidence based instructional and curriculum techniques to ensure that learning is targeted and that children are engaged with their learning.
All lessons are differentiated and children are encouraged to be risk takers, problem solvers and creative in their thinking and learning. We encourage parents to be engaged in their child’s learning and a Curriculum Wall in the administrative area communicates our curriculum as well as a Curriculum Newsletter that goes home to our families each term.
