Learning support

We monitor each student's progress and provide additional learning support if this is required.

Our school uses learning programs and specialised staff where needed and we work in partnership with parents and carers to assist students who have special learning needs.

Our school is committed to working with Aboriginal parents and community members in developing personalised plans for our Aboriginal students.

Students with special education needs build on their achievements in k-6 as they progress through their secondary study and undertake courses to meet the requirements for the School Certificate and senior school Credentials.

It is necessary to continue focusing on the needs, interest and abilities of each student when planning a program for school. The program will comprise the most appropriate combination of courses, outcomes and content available.

Life Skills

For most students with special education needs, the outcomes and content included in our mainstream curriculum will be appropriate, but for a small percentage of these students, particularly those with an intellectual disability, it may be determined that these outcomes and content are not appropriate. For those students the Life Skills outcomes and content, and Life Skills assessment strategies provide the basis for developing a relevant and meaningful program.
