The Victorian Curriculum sets out what every student should learn during their schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active informed citizenship. These are defined by Learning Areas and Capabilities.
Excellence In Learning
Excellence In Learning Includes:
- A strong partnership and high expectations of learning and behaviours between the students, staff and parents to support the success of each student.
- Consistent learning and teaching approaches
- Teachers knowing curriculum, teaching strategies and their students and how they learn best. Specialised programs to meet identified needs – remediation and extension programs including individual learning plans.
- Explicit learning will be planned and structured in subject areas for students to acquire skills and attributes promoting achievement of successful learners.
- Collaboration between the teachers and students on their needs and with the teaching team about learning that will strengthen student achievement and feedback to parents to involve them in the learning.
- Learning will be based on individual student assessment.
- Students developing the abilities to work independently, collaboratively in pairs, and in groups demonstrating social competencies. Students reflect on their learning via self, peer and teacher feedback to continually improve and be successful.
Students will have the opportunities to access specialist and extra curricular opportunities at Tulliallan Primary School. As our school grows we will review and introduce new learning areas and opportunities.
- Health and Physical Education
- Music, Performing Arts
- Visual Arts
- Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)
- Mandarin Language
At Tulliallan Primary School, we are equipped with a range of technology to support student learning. In the junior years, we have sets of iPads, and starting in Year 3 students will have access to school-owned laptop devices.
On top of that, we also have a BYOD program starting in Year 3 that provides a range of benefits to students and helps support our student to device ratio and ensure that every student has access to what they require for learning at all times.
For example: Music, Craft, Sports, Games, Gardening, Technology, Yoga.

School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support – SWPBS
In 2021 Tulliallan will be implementing School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS). This is a framework that brings together school communities to develop positive, safe, supportive learning cultures.
SWPBS assists schools to improve social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for children and young people. SWPBS will be integrated into Team Tulliallan and our Wellbeing programs starting with a focus on our Expected Behaviour Matrix in conjunction with our Codes of Cooperation that outlines the expected behaviours in all areas of the school.
When SWPBS is implemented well, teachers and students have more time to focus on relationships and classroom instruction. Students and staff benefit from:
- increased respectful and positive behaviour
- increased time focused on instruction
- improved social-emotional wellbeing
- positive and respectful relationships among students and staff
- increased adoption of evidence-based instructional practices
- a predictable learning environment with improved perceptions of safety and increased attendance
The SWPBS framework supports schools to identify and successfully implement evidence-based whole-school practices to enhance learning outcomes for children and young people.
