Trinity Catholic Primary offers a curriculum that allows each and every student to achieve and excel, and we focus on growth and continual improvement.
At our school we believe that every student is capable of personal learning success and we ensure that we provide learning experiences that cater for all types of learners. Our teachers are responsive to the needs and abilities of our students and use this to set their learning programs. The learning support team, class teachers and teachers' aides work collaboratively to cater for students with additional needs. Regular assessment and tracking of student performance allows for early identification of, and intervention programs put into place for, students identified as being at risk, particularly in the areas of literacy and numeracy.
We follow the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) approved curriculum in the Key Learning Areas (KLAs) of:
- Human Society and Its Environment
- Science and Technology
- Creative Arts
- Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.
As a Catholic school we also have a strong religious dimension that runs through all the KLAs and is also formally recognised as the KLA of Religious Education. Trinity students K-6 take part in formal Religious Education every day, based on the new Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta curriculum that is relevant to our students and to the world they live in.
As the building blocks for all learning, we have a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy throughout our learning and teaching programs.
At Trinity, we believe literacy is best taught and learnt through meaningful experiences integrated into the curriculum. The daily literacy sessions include opportunities for students to engage in talking, listening, reading and writing activities in a series of whole class, small group, paired and individual experiences. We have a focus on using a variety of quality texts and strongly encourage daily home reading. Specialist programs (such as Reading Recovery) and support are available for children who are at risk in reading and writing.
At Trinity we believe that Numeracy is best taught and learnt through rich and relevant experiences integrated into the curriculum. The daily numeracy sessions include opportunities for the students to engage in activities that develop and promote reasoning, problem-solving, working mathematically and communicating their thinking. A variety of resources assist students to develop efficient mathematical fluency. Specialist programs (such as Extending Mathematical Understanding) and support are available for children who are at risk in mathematics.
