The curriculum of the school relates to the learning which is planned and guided by the school. It is concerned with the intellectual, emotional, physical and social development of children. The ACT Department of Education Curriculum Frameworks and Profile documents provide the basis for curriculum development at Theodore Primary School.
Theodore Primary School aims to provide a safe learning environment through effective management of student behaviour. Our school community values responsible behaviour, as it enables students to benefit from learning experiences and does not infringe on the rights of students to learn and teachers to teach. At Theodore we support students as they learn to take responsibility for their own behaviour. Our student management program provides, through staff guidance and student participation, socially responsible ways of behaving that are acceptable to our school community. Theodore staff are sensitive and appropriately responsive to the needs of each student within a positive, supportive environment that ensures the growth of each student's self-worth.
Children are strongly encouraged to continue their learning at home. Time spent on home activities should be enjoyable for both children and parents. Although homework is a voluntary activity we believe children should be encouraged to engage in a wide variety of meaningful activities at home as well as at school. Homework may be provided to; complete class work, share our school programs with parents and/or develop self responsibility and initiative.
Continuous assessment procedures are used to monitor children's progress throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to discuss any aspect of their child's education with their child's teacher and if necessary, members of the Executive team at a mutually convenient time. Please ring to arrange this whenever you feel it is necessary. Early in the year there are arrangements for individual interviews which focus on an information exchange about children between teachers and parents. In Term 2 children share their learning experiences with their parents in interview format. In Term Four a written report is sent to all parents and there is opportunity to discuss each child's progress as requested by parents and/or teachers.
There are a variety of informal and formal sessions. The focus of these will be advertised in the Newsletter. In term One of each year parents are invited to attend 'getting to know you' interviews. This is an opportunity for you to meet your child's teacher, share relevant information about your child as well as find out about classroom routines and expectations. Times for these will be notified in the newsletter. Information sessions about varies aspects of education will be held at P&C meetings or advertised in the School Newsletter.
