The Curriculum at Darlinghurst
At Darlinghurst Academy our values are deep rooted and underpin all aspects of academy life knowing that A – D leads to E and this is achieved through positive partnerships, 'achieving excellence together'.
At Darlinghurst we describe our curriculum using the 3D's

At Darlinghurst Academy our curriculum ensures that we enable our children (no matter what stage or background) to develop their knowledge and skills to succeed in this ever changing complex world in which we live, cultivating a sense of humanity and belonging. Holistic success is central to our design as we recognise the importance of developing the whole child in order to improve their educational excellence, increase their effectiveness and life chances, preparing them for change.
We provide intentional and responsive experiences to support the development and needs of all our children. This is achieved through varied approaches and contexts allowing our children to develop the learning and life skills that they need and the determination.
Our methods and practice of teaching is carefully crafted to enable this to happen. The Darlinghurst design outlines this approach.
Every day we encourage full participation and use timely feedback to take learning forward.
We support our children to develop learning habits and follow routines so that learning is highly effective. The Direction outlines the fundamentals of teaching and learning.
We aim to make a difference. We want our children to have the self-belief, emotional resilience and character to succeed so that they are grow into good, thoughtful and responsible members of the community. With this in mind, we empower them to be successful learners who are prepared for change, confident individuals who contribute effectively to their learning, laying active roles in their learning and life.
We remember this as SPACE
Successful Learners, Prepared for Change, Active Citizens, Confident Individuals, Effective contributors.
