At The Willows State School it is our priority to develop, maintain and effectively implement high quality curriculum programs for all students. At The Willows State School all students are challenged and encouraged to reach their academic potential at a rate suited to their ability. The school is committed to developing teacher practices through professional development focusing on aspects of curriculum implementation, pedagogy and assessment and the incorporation of a proactive approach to planning and teaching. The Willows State School’s Curriculum Plan is updated annually to reflect the current direction of our school priorities, curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and reporting. Queensland schools are currently implementing:

  • the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography in Prep to Year 10
  • the Queensland curriculum for the remaining  areas of curriculum in Prep to Year 10

Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum:
  • sets out the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for life and work in the 21st century

  • establishes common standards and high expectations of achievement across the nation

The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) develops the Australian Curriculum with input from leading educators in each state. This includes participation and feedback from each schooling sector in Queensland, coordinated by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority. Queensland's implementation of the Australian Curriculum applies proven teaching and assessment practices and focuses on improving student achievement. A range of materials support Queensland teachers to implement the Australian Curriculum, including Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C)materials for Queensland schools. C2C provides a comprehensive set of curriculum and assessment planning materials which Queensland schools adopt or adapt to meet their students' needs and to fit their local context.

P-12 Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting F​ramework

The P-12 curriculum, assessment and reporting framework specifies the current requirements for Queensland state schools in delivering the curriculum from Prep to Year 12. The framework is accompanied by a series of policy statements providing further detail. In implementing the P-12 curriculum, assessment and reporting framework Queensland state schools:

  • provide students with the required curriculum 

  • assess, monitor and capture student achievement 

  • set high expectations for each student and respond effectively to their current levels of achievement and differing rates of learning

  • prepare students to exit schooling with the foundation for successful lifelong learning and participation in the community 

  • keep parents and students informed of the student's achievement throughout their schooling.
