Curriculum

Aspley State School offers a wide range of educational experiences for its students. With a strong focus upon literacy and numeracy, the Australian Curriculum is followed in the subject areas of English, Maths, Science, History and Geography. The syllabi for the other key learning areas are guided by Education Queensland's Essential Learnings.

Aspley State School, established in 1890, values and promotes lifelong learning for all members of our school community. Curriculum is student-focused, aims to maximise achievement for all students and provides opportunities for enrichment. Student learning opportunities are scaffolded to support students towards becoming independent learners.

Aspley offers a wide range of cultural, sporting and enrichment activities. We have an excellent music program inclusive of choirs, instrumental music, recorder and percussion groups. Extracurricular activities include private tuition in art, tennis, swimming and chess. With a large assembly hall, swimming pool, tennis courts and two technology labs, our school is future-focused, ensuring we are preparing our students for their future.

A strong commitment to environmental sustainability is fostered through our education programs, practical initiatives such as the installation of water tanks to service our toilets and swimming pool and a solar energy system complementing usage to and from the electricity grid, and classroom initiatives such as composting, recycling and gardening programs. We are an active participant in the Queensland Environmental Sustainable Schools Initiative.

Assessment and reporting

 
Reporting to parents occurs twice yearly at the end of Term 2 and Term 4. Reports use a 5 point scale for benchmarking student achievement. 
 
A valuable method of communication is the parent/teacher interview.  These are offered twice a year to discuss student progress.  Should a concern arise throughout the year, the teachers are always willing to arrange a mutually suitable time to meet and discuss any concerns.
 
The progress of all our students is of paramount importance to Aspley State School.  To assist in ensuring that all students are progressing satisfactorily, observation tasks are undertaken in term 1 and again in term 4 so that individual growth of students can be tracked.  These tasks are undertaken with the class teacher and coordinated by the Support Teacher (Literacy and Numeracy.)​
