Curriculum Direction


 At Kingsbury Primary School we use the AusVELS curriculum to plan and assess student achievement.

"AusVELS is the Foundation to Year 10 curriculum that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards, which schools use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.

AusVELS incorporates the Australian Curriculum learning areas for English, Mathematics, History and Science only, within the curriculum framework first developed for the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). AusVELS also includes ‘Towards Foundation Level AusVELS’ (levels A to D) for students with disabilities."AusVELS Website

In the years to come, we will be transitioning to the new Victorian Curriculum as required by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.

   The Curiosity and Powerful Learning Program - Myer McRel 

In 2014, the School Council gave permission and financial support so that all staff at Kingsbury could engage with professional learning through the Curiosity and Powerful Learning Program over the next 3-5 years. Kingsbury Primary School had previously been engaged in similar programs such as the Northern Metropolitan Region (NMR) Achievement Improvement Zones.

"The Curiosity and Powerful Learning program is designed for school communities wanting to engage in a rigorous school improvement process focusing on improvement at a classroom, leadership and system level.

This program will provide schools with the opportunity to develop awareness of the big ideas of Curiosity and Powerful Learning:

  • teaching for curiosity and learning skills
  • inside out working
  • intrinsic motivation
  • the journey to excellence as a universal school improvement platform
  • how and when to employ leadership frameworks during the school improvement process, and
  • the importance of narrative across the classroom, school and system"

We believe that the shared vision between School Council and our Staff ensures that we are heading in the right direction as we continue to build teacher efficacy to ensure high level student achievement.
