Responsibility for curriculum rests with the school staff who work as a team within these guidelines.

The schools’ policies allow individual teachers to vary their methods and allows for your child to progress at his/her own rate. Every effort is made to provide continuity within the school.

It is the responsibility of all teachers to ensure that the principles of equity and social justice pervade the total curriculum so that all groups of children who participate in the schooling process can achieve equal educational outcomes.
