Teaching and Learning at Seaford Rise Primary School is based upon the Australian Curriculum and the Department for Education's teaching for effective learning framework.
We begin the year with our “Strengthening School
Culture” which includes lessons and activities, based on a set of
beliefs and principles that lay the foundation for the building of a
school and classroom culture that strives for continuous improvement. It involves the implementation of whole
school and class strategies and practices and requires a change in
mindset about learning, teaching and schooling.
There are several principles, philosophies and programs that support the entire curriculum and are applicable across the whole school.
Quality teaching and learning is based on the belief that teachers make a difference in student’s lives through having high expectations, genuinely caring for all students, differentiating the learning to cater for the individual needs of each student. Research points to effective relationships between the teacher and the student and between students as the key to improving learning outcomes.
Through our School Values - respect, responsibility, honesty, learning, cooperation and friendliness, social and emotional development of each student is enhanced. This is coupled with a strong academic focus where students learning is guided by our School Vision - "Creating a community of lifelong learners who are empowered to live successfully in the 21st century.
Together these twin foci sees our students striving to each day to live out the Schools Motto - Dream, Believe, Achieve.
As well as the current curriculum areas of English, Mathematics, Science, HASS, Technology we also have our specialist areas of Japanese, The Arts and Physical Education.
The school also provides comprehensive Special Education Program and Intervention Programs to support student’s with specific learning needs. In addition to this, the school has a dedicated Disability Unit who develop programs and practices to meet the individual needs of these students.
