The Australian Curriculum sets the expectations for what all young Australians should be taught, regardless of where they live in Australia or their background.
The Disability Discrimination Act (1992) and the Disability Standards for Education (2005) require education and training service providers to support the rights of students with disability to access the curriculum on the same basis as students without a disability. Students with disability are entitled to rigorous, relevant and engaging learning opportunities drawn from age equivalent Australian Curriculum content on the same basis as students without disability. The acknowledgement that the needs and interests of students will vary, and that schools and teachers will plan from the curriculum in ways that respond to those needs and interests. The three-dimensional design of the Australian Curriculum, comprising learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities, provides teachers with flexibility to cater for the diverse needs of students across Australia and personalise learning.
In years 7, 8, 9 and 10 students follow the Australian Curriculum with relevant learning in each of the curriculum areas aligned to their individual learning needs and is recorded in their One Plan goals.
