In Newfoundland and Labrador, children in Grades 1, 2, and 3 are enroled in the Province’s primary schools.

The primary school curriculum is designed to develop fundamental knowledge, skills, and values. The curriculum is a differentiated one with prescribed content and core outcomes in: English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, French, music, art, physical education, health, and religious education.

The focus of the primary school is on the growth and development of the learner (intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and physically). The overall method of instruction is activity-inquiry, a hands-on, minds-on approach to learning that helps children meet each learning situation in such a way that it will have meaning for them. Making connections and developing abilities across subject areas is one way of enhancing children’s understanding of concepts, values, and skills. However, there is an expectation that student achievement at the primary level will result from a combination of discrete and connected teaching/ learning experiences.

The primary school is a learning environment sensitive to each child’s needs and developmental level. It recognizes that each child is a worthwhile individual with potential for growth and development. In the primary school, parents and educators are partners in the child’s education.
