Learning & Teaching

Curriculum

St Brendan’s offers a comprehensive curriculum for students from Foundation to Year 6. As an inclusive school we aim to provide stimulating, challenging learning experiences for every student whilst catering for individual difference and needs.

Teaching and Learning

Here at St. Brendan’s we are committed to teaching all students the skills and strategies required for learning in the 21st century. Working in collaboration enables the development of rich, challenging and flexible learning environments supporting all students to learn and maximize their potential. Information technology is an important resource in our approach to learning and is an area we are continually developing.

Learning Adjustments

The Victorian Curriculum drives all planning with an eye across all learning progressions to ensure each child is taught at their point of need, including planning for adjustments. Continual formal and informal assessments provides rich knowledge for both teachers and students in setting practical and achievable learning goals.

Students who have been deemed eligible to receive funding under the Commonwealth Program, NCCD (Nationally Consistent Collection of Data) formally known as Students with Disabilities have a Personal Learning Program written for them. Appropriate adjustments to the curriculum are made to address the individual needs of the student. In collaboration with the teacher and parents/carers and where appropriate, the student, goals are set each term. At times, professionals from outside agencies are also involved. These may include CEO staff, speech therapists, occupational therapists etc.
