Teaching & Learning

Norwood Primary School is at the leading edge of educational practice. The latest thinking in education is being used to explore and develop models of best practice in student learning. Teachers develop differentiated programs to meet the needs of our students, supported by a strong team of Student Support Officers.

The school follows the Australian Curriculum with a significant emphasis on the General Capabilities and the teaching of transferable skills. We aim to develop students’ identity, resilience, self-management, reasoning and communication skills, understanding of interconnections and capacity to positively influence their futures.

We teach a growth mindset and use a combination of explicit instruction and inquiry approaches to maximize learning opportunities, promote student ownership of their learning journey and respond to current pedagogical research.

Throughout the year students are exposed to a wide of variety of additional opportunities, including camps, incursions and excursions.
