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.
The process for gaining recognition of an alternative curriculum and/or reporting on student achievement is outlined in the following document: The Process of Recognition.
Due to the review of the Foundation to Year 10 Australian Curriculum by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) that was undertaken in 2021 and endorsed by Education Ministers in April 2022, the Authority is currently auditing the endorsed Australian Curriculum Version 9 to inform the future adoption and/or adaption within the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.
This ongoing work will continue in 2023 and 2024, and as a result, formal submissions will not be accepted for recognition of an alternative curriculum/reporting at this time.
However, schools who are considering an alternative curriculum to the P–10 Western Australian Curriculum and/or a different method of reporting student achievement should contact the Principal Consultant responsible for alternative curriculum/reporting recognition:
