How We Organise Learning at Farrer Primary School

Quality Teaching is the Learning Platform that underpins the work of teachers at Farrer Primary School.

Learning Platform

  • All students can be successful learners.
  • All students bring diverse resources, needs and experiences to school.
  • All students are at different points on the learning continuum and every student is entitled to a learning experience that meets their needs.
  • Learning experiences are relevant to our students and our society.
  • Intellectual quality is necessary in all learning experiences to support and engage all students.

Our Learning Teams

Teachers collaborate within each stage to use the Learning by Design Framework to plan, select and sequence learning experiences. This framework moves students through a deliberate process where knowledge is extended, challenged, applied and refined.

  • Early Childhood Team: Students in the early primary years (Preschool, Kindergarten, Years 1 and  2)
  • Primary School Learning Team: Students in the upper primary years (Years 3, 4,  5 and 6)
