As for all other State Schools, since January 2012 the Australian National Curriculum has been used as the basis for program development at Pine Rivers Special School.

Because of the fragmented nature of many children’s learning, considerable adjustment will be required for many of our students. This will be recorded within their Individual Curriculum Plan.


Individual Curriculum Plan 

Each semester, teachers are required to meet with parents to discuss the child’s progress of their learning and to negotiate the adjusted level of curriculum which will be offered. The identification of the Year Level of Curriculum that will be accessed also identifies the year level standards against which the child will be assessed.
This is also an opportunity for parents and teachers to discuss any issues impacting upon the child’s engagement in learning attributed to their disability and to develop a plan to address these.
Areas addressed may include:
  • Communication,
  • Sensory Processing,
  • Gross and Fine Motor Development,
  • Social Participation and Emotional Well-being
  • Health and Personal Care,
  • Access to the Curriculum, and
  • Safety
If the child is in the Care and Protection of the Department of Communities (Child Safety), there is an additional requirement to develop an Educational Support Plan (ESP) to address any additional concerns.
