Alternative Curriculum/Reporting Recognition
Schools who plan to implement a curriculum that is different to the P-10 Western Australian Curriculum and/or a different method of reporting student achievement, as outlined in the School Curriculum and Standards Authority’s Pre-primary to Year 10: Teaching, Assessing and Reporting Policy, must apply to the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) to seek recognition.
In 2021, the Authority will accept alternative curriculum submissions for the following Pre-primary to Year 10 learning areas:
English Health and Physical Education
Mathematics Languages (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6)
Humanities and Social Sciences The Arts
The following information is provided to explain the process of recognition of well-established alternative curriculum (and/or reporting on student achievement) as meeting the requirements of the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline and to assist organisations to prepare for submissions to the Authority’s Alternative Curriculum/Reporting Recognition Review Panel:
In 2021 submissions by schools and education providers for recognition of an alternative curriculum (and/or reporting on student achievement) that aligns with the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline will be made online to the Authority.
