The school follows the Victorian Essential Learning Standards, which is the Education Department Prep to Year 10 curriculum for Victorian schools.

At Yarralinda School we use the VELS as a baseline. We find that with our unique approach to learning the children are keen to explore and learn beyond the parameters of the VELS curriculum.

There are some specific approaches that we use that are outlined below.

– Children are taught to read using a phonics based reading program. We do not teach “whole word” learning.

– Children have individual learning programs for literacy and numeracy allowing them scope to either move ahead or work at cementing foundation skills.

– Spelling Mastery Program (SRA) from grade two through six which develops students spelling skills through interwoven strategies.

Yep! This is the school for my child
