Narre Warren North Primary School Curriculum

Challenging and motivating students to take responsibility for their learning is a major goal of our curriculum program.

We base our current curriculum on the Victorian Curriculum. The Victorian Curriculum F–10 sets out what every student should learn during their first eleven years of schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship.

The Victorian Curriculum F–10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards

We see Literacy and Numeracy skill development as fundamental to learning in all other areas. In addition to English and Mathematics, we utilise an Integrated Inquiry approach that allows students to actively investigate the way our world works.

Through the student-centred Inter@ct Curriculum Program, students investigate the concepts of Identity, Sustainability, Social Justice, Creativity, Community, Change , Necessity and Curiosity, and cover the following curriculum areas:

  • Interpersonal Development
