Approach 2 – Stage-based – incorporating child protection education units
This approach is stage-based and includes specific units of learning to address child protection education. Syllabus content addressing other PDHPE-related policies is embedded throughout multiple units of learning.
Early Stage 1 (ES1) has an ‘Option A’ and ‘Option B’. These options were developed to provide flexibility in making this scope and sequence suitable for a stage-based and/or a multi-stage context. Option A aligns to the ‘Odd’ years for Stages 1-3 while Option B aligns to the ‘Even’ years for Stages 1-3. Schools may choose the option that best suits their context.
