The Grange offers internationally-recognised programs that are designed for Years 1-6. These International primary programs are aimed at developing every learner’s skill in English, Mathematics and Science.

Each stage of the international education equips young learners with the essential knowledge, skills and informed curiosity they need later in life. It prepares students for their next academic move and builds an excellent foundation for future study.

In addition, our programs provide teachers with classroom support to assess students’ abilities, strengths and weaknesses.

Assessment is integral to the teaching and learning at The Grange as it provides feedback for and to students, parents and teachers about the learning process. Our student progress is closely monitored using both ongoing (formative) assessment and end of Unit (summative) assessment practices. Both students and teachers are actively engaged in the assessment process. At The Grange, assessment focuses on both the process and the product of learning. The student’s social and academic progress is equally valued.

Teachers utilise a range of strategies and tools during the assessment process which include, but not limited to: observations, self-assessments, peer assessments, open-ended tasks, performance tasks, process focused tasks ect. A reflection period is integrated into the timetable on a daily basis when students are encouraged to reflect on their learning as a means of taking their learning forward, and recording this in their individual Student Reflection Journal.

Detailed descriptive reports are given to parents twice a year and two parent/teacher conferences are conducted to discuss each student’s social and academic progress. A Student Led Conference is also conducted towards the end of each academic year. Academic achievement of students is bench-marked according to the Cambridge International Primary Curriculum and the Australian National Curriculum. At the end of Year 6, students are able to sit the Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Assessments which provide valuable feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses before they progress to secondary education.
