Western Australian Curriculum Mandated Materials

The Pre-primary to Year 10 Western Australian curriculum provides a coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and achievement standards which schools will use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.

The Western Australian curriculum encompasses ACARA's Australian curriculum English, Mathematics and Science. In addition, year-level syllabuses for Humanities and Social Sciences, Health and Physical Education, Technologies, The Arts and Languages remain broadly consistent with the Australian curriculum but have been contextualised to make them more suitable for Western Australian students and teachers.

Given the phased implementation of the Western Australian curriculum for Languages, schools may be teaching from the former Western Australian Curriculum Framework.

Other support resources, including sample assessment tasks and sample teaching and learning outlines, for Years 7 to 10 Languages are being published progressively prior to the year of implementation.

Following the endorsement by Education Ministers of Version 9 of the Australian Curriculum in April 2022, Western Australia will determine how the Version 9 curriculum may be adapted and/or adopted in the Western Australian context. Schools and teachers must continue to deliver the current Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline until advised otherwise.
