Academic Extension and Support
Swanbourne Primary has established partnerships with the Primary Extension and Academic Challenge (PEAC) program and external support agencies to guide differentiated teaching and learning.
You can find out about the specific content for each learning area and each year level from Pre-primary to Year 6 at School Curriculum and Standards Authority.
A differentiated curriculum ensures curriculum is based on sound knowledge of each individual child. When working with children with additional needs, educators target capabilities and work closely with families and support personnel to differentiate learning opportunities that foster equity and fairness for all children and their families.
Educators maximise children's learning by making knowledgeable decisions about teaching and learning in five learning and development areas related to the outcomes identified in the curriculum. Actively engaging learners, arousing their curiosity and responding to capabilities will make children more likely to be motivated, curious and feel supported in the learning process.
