At Pine Rivers Special School (P.R.S.S.), the nationally mandated curriculum learning areas are adopted from entry to exit. The Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005 are intended to give students with disability, the same rights as other students, including the right to education and training ‘on the same basis’, as students without disability. (ACARA, 2014)

Adopting the ‘on the same basis’ philosophy, a framework to roll out the delivery of the core learning areas of the Australian Curriculum is enacted at P.R.S.S., to ensure a structured approach to the teaching of English, Mathematics, Science, Technology and Physical Education. These learning areas remain standardised across the school, with mapped and varied delivery of content, aligned to rich contexts, across the different stages of schooling.

This whole school approach ensures students have access to curriculum from the P level, (Foundation) increasing as the students’ progress through the school, but focusing on each student’s ability and what they know and can do.
