Revisions English, Mathematics, Science The revised curriculum for English, Maths and Science appears in the Outline as is (V8.1) full implementation, including teaching, assessing and reporting by schools will be in place with first reporting to parents/carers by the end of Semester 1. 15 Science

The Science syllabus consists of four sub-strands in Science Understanding which must be taught in each year: Biological Sciences Chemical Sciences Earth and Environmental Sciences Physical Sciences. The mandated curriculum must be taught over the course of the year. One grade is reported for student achievement in Science.

16 Humanities and Social Sciences The Humanities and Social Science syllabus consists of four subjects which must be taught in each year: Civics and Citizenship Economics and Business Geography

History. The mandated curriculum must be taught over the course of the year. One grade is reported for student achievement in Humanities and Social Science Semester 1, 2017. 17 Health and Physical Education

The Health and Physical Education syllabus comprises two strands: Personal, social and community health and Movement and physical activity. Health and Physical Education is mandated from Pre-primary to Year 10. Separate Achievement Standards for Health Education and for Physical Education. One grade is reported for student achievement in Health Semester 1, 2017. One grade is reported for student achievement in Physical Education Semester 1, 2017. 18 The Arts

Five subjects: Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts. All students will study a performance subject (Dance, Drama or Music) and a visual arts subject (Media Arts or Visual Arts). In Years 9 and 10 the study of the Arts is optional. Desirable that schools provide students with the opportunity to engage with all five Arts subjects across Pre-primary to Year 10. Across a year, one grade is reported for student achievement in a performance subject Semester 1, 2018.

Across a year, one grade is reported for student achievement in a visual subject Semester 1, 2018. 19 Technologies

Two subjects: Digital Technologies and Design and Technologies. Design and Technologies: Engineering principles and systems; Food and fibre production; Food specialisations; Materials and technologies specialisations students have the opportunity to study at least one of the contexts. Desirable to engage in all contexts across Pre-primary to Year 10. In Years 9 and 10 the study of Technologies is optional. Across a year, one grade is reported for student achievement in Digital Technologies Semester 1, 2018. Across a year, one grade is reported for student achievement in Design and Technologies Semester 1, 2018. 20 Languages

In 2018 one language for Year 3 must be implemented. 21 New Kindergarten Resources Coming Soon Exploring the Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines using a: Sample Integrated Teaching and Learning Program - exemplifying an inquiry approach to exploring a big picture concept POW (Play Opportunities Web) - a related sample multi-faceted web, connecting play with the Early Years Learning Framework outcomes to explore holistic approaches to teaching and learning.

Abilities Based Learning Education, Western Australia Non-mandatory resources for teachers of students with significant intellectual disability who cant access the P 10 Western Australian Curriculum. Assessment Tools Used to identify students readiness to learn across three learning domains: English Speaking and Listening; English Reading and Writing; and Personal and Social Capability. Curriculum Curriculum content descriptions and Achievement Standards for Stages A to D, in all Learning Areas, except Languages. Online Professional Learning Modules 23

Intensive English Centre There are 14 primary, secondary and post-compulsory Intensive English Centres in Perth catering for newly arrived migrant and humanitarian entrants (refugees who may commence school with limited or no English). Language, literacy and content need to be taught according to the students age and year level. Students are assessed and reported on in English, Viewing, Speaking, Listening and Writing using EAL/D Progress Map Levels. In other curriculum areas, student achievement should be recognised but a grade does not have to be allocated. Students are regarded as being on an IEP. 24

Pre-primary to Year 10: Teaching, Assessing and Reporting Policy Students on a modified curriculum If there is a legitimate reason for a student to be following a modified curriculum, schools negotiate any variation to the Western Australian curriculum with the student and her/his parents/carers, and document the decisions made (for example, a documented individual education plan and documented learning plan). Schools use discretion in regard to the use of Stages A, B, C and D ABLEWA curriculum content, detailed in the Outline, for planning for teaching students with disability and additional learning needs. Schools use discretion in regard to the use of the EAL/D Progress Map when planning for teaching and monitoring the progress of students for whom English is an additional language/dialect. Schools report on a students progress/achievement in terms of the modified curriculum.

Possible Lines of Enquiry Is the school using the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline? Does the school have an Assessment and Reporting Policy? Do assessments enable students to demonstrate their knowledge, understandings and skills in relation to the achievement standards? Do teachers monitor and assess individual student achievement, referring to the Principles of Learning, Teaching and Assessment? What processes exist within the school to support teachers to make valid and reliable judgements? Is student achievement reported according to the policy requirements?

Possible Lines of Enquiry How is NAPLAN data used to track student achievement what interventions are in place for students at risk? How is the school monitoring the achievement of students with disability and reporting on their achievement to parents? Is the Western Australian Curriculum being implemented and according to the implementation timeline? Is the school using textbooks or eastern states curriculum that does not align to the Western Australian Curriculum? What coverage of subjects is occurring in The Arts, Technologies and Health and Physical Education. Are these being taught from Pre-primary to Year 8?

30 Notional Time Allocation Guidelines: Pre-primary to Year 10 The Notional Time Allocation Guidelines: Pre-primary to Year 10 (the Guidelines) have been developed to assist schools and teachers plan for and make decisions about how the curriculum is implemented in their schools. The Guidelines are presented as a guide. They are not mandatory and do not presume how schools should organise their students learning. Moderation Pilot Years 6 and 7 The purpose of the Authoritys moderation pilot in English and Mathematics is to support schools with:

appropriately delivering the syllabus correctly implementing the Authoritys assessment requirements using Judging Standards to inform teacher judgements assign grades that are comparable with state-wide standards for the Learning Area/subject/context. 32 Moderation Pilot Years 6 and 7

Schools, from across school systems/sector in two networks (north and south), and one regional network, will be invited to participate in a moderation pilot for English and Mathematics. In Term 1, participating schools will be provided with an assessment task to complete along with a marking key. The pilot will commence in Term 2. Teachers will be asked to bring along student work samples to the meeting. Brightpath The Authority has purchased the licence for Brightpath.

Brightpath is an assessment and reporting software that allows teachers to make reliable assessments of student achievements based on classroom assessment tasks. Brightpath Contact: Maureen Lorimer, Principal Consultant, Strategic Projects Email: maureen [email protected] 248 schools used Brightpath in 2016

In addition, 215 schools registered so far this year Five English and one Science assessment items Humanities and Social Sciences and Mathematics assessment items in development Syllabus Review Process

More time to bed down curriculum content delivery and teacher understandings When the process occurs there will a limit of the level of changes made to syllabuses no blank page approach. Review of K 12 Learning Area at one time is highly unlikely unless it is necessary. 36 Data Required by the Authority We Need Your Assistance

WA Student Number (WASN) Registration of all Primary students through SIRS who are: implementing NAPLAN Online in 2017 using Brightpath and/or ABLEWA resources. Has your school received correspondence from the Authority? During the period 2017 through to 2019, all WA primary schools will transition to registering all of their students. Access the SIRS Information page especially for primary schools http://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/sirs-info/primary-schools. SIRS information for primary schools
