Community Language Schools (CLS).
The North Shore Polish Saturday School is part of the NSW Community Languages Schools Program. The whole school curriculum is approved by the NSW Department of Education and reflects topics based on the K-10 Languages Framework published by NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) in 2018. NESA syllabuses include agreed Australian Curriculum content that clarifies the scope, breadth and depth of learning. The syllabus outcomes and the Stage statements for Early Stage 1 to Stage 5 align with the Australian Curriculum achievement standards. In NSW the Community Languages Schools Program offer classes in more than 50 different community languages. Primary school age students attending the CLS are given the opportunity to maintain their mother tongue or heritage language and are open also to any student who want to learn a new language.

About the NSPSS Polish language programs.
The language to be studied and assessed is the modern standard version of Polish. Students should be aware of formal and informal levels of language used in daily life. The Polish K–10 syllabus provides opportunities for students to engage with the linguistic and cultural diversity of the Polish-speaking communities. Through learning Polish, students develop communication skills, focus on languages as systems and gain insights into the relationship between language and culture, leading to lifelong personal, educational and vocational benefits.
In NSW the Australian Curriculum is being implemented through syllabuses developed by the NSW Education Standards Authority. The NSW curriculum is organised in seven stages of learning.
Kindergarten to Year 6 (K–6) includes four stages of learning:
- Early Stage 1. Kindergarten
- Stage 1. Year 1 and Year 2
- Stage 2. Year 3 and Year 4
- Stage 3. Year 5 and Year 6
- Stage 4. Year 7 and Year 8
- Stage 5. Year 9 and Year 10
- Stage 6. Year 11 and Year 12
- students who are studying the language as second or additional language learners; and
- students who have prior learning and/or experience.
Attendance. All parents/guardians/carers must make reasonable efforts to ensure that their child attends Saturday classes without delay and to explain their child's absence from school and the reason (if any). For misadventure, evidence of the misadventure that prevented attendance is required.
Reporting student achievement to parents/guardians/carers helps promote shared understanding, and can be facilitated through student work samples, portfolios, teacher-parent-pupil interview and student self-assessment. Reporting will provide information on what students know, what they do in class and how they can improve. The Common Grade Scale A–E or equivalent provides a common system for reporting by describing observable and measurable features of student achievement from Stage1 to Stage 5. Teachers use the descriptions of the standards to make a professional, on-balance judgement, based on observations and available assessment results.
