About this illustration

When Lansdale Primary School began implementing the Australian Curriculum, it adopted a whole-school approach, focusing on one learning area at a time. Professional development, finances and team meetings were focused on the particular learning area in focus. Teachers work in teams making the timetable an important aspect of how the school manages the facilitation of the Australian Curriculum. The large school size enabled all staff on a year level to be released at the same time to collaborate and plan together. With ICT integration as a high priority specialist ICT teachers are used to provide leadership to the school staff in this area. The general capabilities are seen as a rich component and are integrated and imbedded into teaching/learning programs. Research provided by Hattie and Semple, and a vision for world’s best practice provide the foundation for pedagogy and planning in the school.The next focus for the school is on the achievement standards and consistency in assessment that will enable students to demonstrate their success.
