Catholic schools are guided by the formal curriculum outlined by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) and during the transition to a fully national curriculum, the Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) Syllabus Documents also continue to guide teaching and learning in some learning areas. The Archdiocese of Brisbane determines the curriculum for Religious Education. This syllabus was published in 2013 and aligns with the national curriculum. It is mandatory that all teachers in Catholic schools be qualified to teach Religion.

Our school has the services of a Support Teacher: Inclusive Education whose role includes managing the cases of special needs children in our classes and supporting classroom teachers in providing for the needs of all students. The learning support teacher works with students referred to them by the class teacher.
St Peter Chanel also has the services of a specialist Literacy and Numeracy Support Teacher who works with children who require assistance in these areas.
