The Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework Process

We follow the nationally accredited Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework which is different to the Australian Curriculum or the Western Australian Curriculum. It is a rich an inspiring exploration through time which develops a large array of skills.

The Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework was developed by Steiner education Australia (SEA) in response to the 2009 Federal Government’s proposal to create a mandatory Australian Curriculum for all schools. As Steiner education is internationally recognised, they were given the opportunity to put forward an alternate curriculum framework for recognition, in order to protect the integrity of Steiner education philosophy and pedagogy.

The documents were developed from Steiner’s indications, not only to support schools and teachers, but for submission to government authorities, mapping the mandatory content, knowledge and skills of the Australian Curriculum in a Steiner rich context for recognition.

As in the Australian Curriculum, teacher’s professional judgement with regard to a particular cohort of student needs may vary the curriculum implementation one year before or after the designated staging.
