It is important to recognise that each teacher differentiates the curriculum to meet the learning needs of students with a wide range of abilities. This is applicable in both straight and multi-age level grades. All teachers use a range of ongoing assessments to plan and provide each child with appropriate learning opportunities across the curriculum. All children are provided with a supportive, engaging and challenging learning environment. All teachers work in teams to ensure the best learning outcomes for each child.
