Curriculum

At Tinana State School it is our priority to develop, maintain and effectively implement high quality curriculum programs for all students.

Tinana State School’s Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Plan is updated annually to reflect the current direction of our school priorities, curriculum, pedagogy, assessment and reporting.
The Tinana State School Curriculum, Reporting and Assessment Plan seeks to reflect the improvement of students’ outcomes through a rigorous and focussed agenda to improve teacher quality. Improving the ability of the expert teaching team to deliver a quality curriculum to all students, assess and report on students as per agreed schedules that reflect both departmental guidelines and policies as well as community values.

Effective systematic curriculum delivery at Tinana State School involves school leaders and teachers using whole school moderation processes to align curriculum pedagogy, assessment and reporting; and to ensure consistency of teacher judgements and accuracy of reported results against the Australian Curriculum (AC) achievement standards. Our teachers align the teaching, assessing and reporting of the Australian Curriculum through the use of the Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) materials.
Our teachers engage in a planning process every term to develop a shared understanding of the alignment between the curriculum intent, assessment, teaching and learning sequence, and reporting.
