COVID 19 - Curriculum and Assessment Advice for 2021

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) continues to monitor the impact of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will be providing ongoing advice for students, teachers, school leaders, parents/guardians/carers and the community as the situation evolves.

The Board of the Authority continues to work from the premise that no student should be disadvantaged as a result of the COVID-19 situation.

We encourage everyone to stay up-to-date with our latest communications and resources as they become available.

Through this page, we will continue to provide advice and support that will enable teachers, students, school leaders and parents/guardians/carers to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 situation.

Students, teachers, parents/guardians/carers and the community should be confident that the Board of the Authority continues to work from the premise that no student should be disadvantaged.

The Authority is:

  • taking a flexible and agile approach to meeting emerging issues and is relying on schools to be similarly flexible and agile in ensuring continuity of learning and delivery of assessment
  • working with the education systems/sector – the Department of Education, Catholic Education Western Australia and the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia – to ensure the best outcomes possible for students
  • providing advice and support to teachers and school leaders through this website, which will enable them to respond to the challenges, particularly in a modified learning environment
  • working with the tertiary and training sector, at the state and national level, to clarify pathways to post-school options for Year 12 students at the end of the year
  • providing advice and support to students through this website, particularly those Year 12s working towards the WACE in 2021.
