Curriculum

 

St James’ Anglican School aims to deliver an integrated approach to schooling from Kindergarten to Year 12. The curriculum from Kindergarten to Year 10 at St James’ is designed and implemented in line with the Guiding Principles for Western Australian Schools for the Curriculum and Assessment Outline. In Year 11 and 12 the curriculum at St James’ will follow the guidelines laid out by the School Curriculum and StandardsAuthority (SCSA) in order for students to meet the requirements for the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE), or its replacement should there be one by 2021.

A school's curriculum is the total of all activities, both formal and informal, which take place in and outside the classroom, and before and after the hours of instruction.

In the Primary sector, emphasis is placed on communication skills, literacy and numeracy skills, and physical education, spiritual and cultural development.

For Secondary students, the goal is to provide a broad general education, within which there is a range of educational possibilities, including studies for tertiary admission and studies, which do not have tertiary entrance as a main emphasis.

There is also a wide range of out of classroom activities such as outdoor education, games, clubs and crafts.
