Curriculum

Adam Road Primary School offers a comprehensive curriculum encompassing all aspects of the Western Australian Curriculum supported by additional school based programs to meet the needs of all students.

As a primary school, our major focus is on all students developing effective literacy and numeracy skills while offering a broad range of programs to cater for the needs and interests of our students.

A literacy progression has been developed for all Kindergarten to Year 2 classrooms which ensures a sequential and developmental approach to building early literacy skills and targeted intervention.

Early Intervention Language Program
