Victorian schools work to a set of guidelines, AusVELS, which is a combination of the current Australian Curriculum and the Victorian VELS ( Victorian Educational Learning Standards). They outline what is crucial for all students to learn from Prep to Year 10. Schools use the Standards to plan their teaching and learning programs, including assessment and reporting of student progress.
The Standards outline what is important for students to learn during their time at school.
The Standards ensure that students continue learning traditional subjects such as english, mathematics, science, humanities, languages and the arts. Within these subjects, students learn the physical, personal and social skills they need in life.
The school report card shows how far your child has progressed during the year, and compares their performance with the standards expected for students of their age.
We want our students to be informed and empowered through student voice and choice.
