English Courses

In accordance with the K–10 Curriculum Framework and the Statement of Equity Principles, the English syllabus takes into account the diverse needs of all students. It identifies essential knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes. It outlines clear standards of what students are expected to know and be able to do in K–10. It provides structures and processes by which teachers can provide continuity of study for all students.


The framework also provides a set of broad learning outcomes that summarise the knowledge, understanding, skills, values and attitudes essential for all students in all learning areas to succeed in and beyond their schooling. The continued relevance of the K–10 Curriculum Framework is consistent with the intent of the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (December 2008), which sets the direction for Australian schooling for the next 10 years.

There are two broad goals:


Goal 1: Australian schooling promotes equity and excellence

Goal 2: All young Australians become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens.


The way in which learning in the English K–10 Syllabus will contribute to the curriculum and to students’ achievement of the broad learning outcomes is outlined in the syllabus rationale.
