Schools can adopt one or many of the 5C domains depending on what specific needs the students have that the school is not currently meeting.
All learning programs have either been built to, or retrospectively mapped to, the Australian Curriculum. Schools are provided a detailed curriculum delivery framework that they can use to align to their schools curriculum plan.
• Case-managed early intervention strategies customised to close development gaps so children are better prepared for education
• Case-managed maternal health that supports mothers to raise healthy children
• Positive parenting programs so parents can best support their child’s needs
• Child and parent support to successfully transition to school.
Our Childhood domain is suitable for schools where a cluster or majority of students continually start well behind their peers or with residual development gaps that disadvantage their school experience.
We use programs and practices that have been scientifically proven to be effective. This is crucial in the early years of school when children are grasping the foundations of literacy and numeracy.
Horizons is designed for classrooms where the majority of students are familiar with English and reading.
Reading mastery is designed for classrooms where students are unfamiliar with English and reading or are experiencing learning difficulties. It uses a special orthography and more continuous blending.
There are also programs that parents can use at home with their children to develop their literacy and maths skills. They are Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons, Funnix and Fun math.
The Class domain is suitable for schools where a cluster or majority of students are not meeting national literacy and numeracy benchmarks or schools that wish to accelerate their literacy and numeracy results.
Club is suitable for schools where a cluster or majority of students are from low socioeconomic status background or socially marginalised and do not have access to enriching activities in their school or home life.
The Culture domain is suitable for schools wanting to cover STEM through enriching cultural narratives and wanting to study Indigenous cultures and prospectives. Capacity to increase local Indigenous content to meet specific needs of Indigenous students.
The Civics domain is suitable for schools with large migrant or disengaged school communities as it improved school climate, reduces destructive behaviours and lowers school drop-out rates.
The Community domain is suitable for schools in communities where a cluster or majority of students are not school ready or have poor attendance and are not getting secondary success.
