Inclusive Education

​​​​​​​Learning is individual, so not all students will become literate and numerate in the same timeframe and in the same way. Some students will still need further specific support to engage in their learning.

Making appropriate educational adjustments may include:

  • developing systematic procedures for identifying, planning, teaching, assessing and monitoring progress.
  • some students requiring an Individual Learning Plan regularly updated to review progress. All stakeholders contributing to the plan; parents, carers, students, teachers and support staff.
  • employing experienced and qualified staff to coordinate the whole school approaches
  • using appropriate teaching materials that motivate students to learn.
  • using resources creatively (e.g. use staff flexibly to provide a range of regular classroom supports appropriate for individual student needs)
  • universal, targeted, strategic and intensive tiers of support being used to help students to access the Australian curriculum
  • students being taught in daily literacy and numeracy sessions with support staff in classrooms to maximise learning and feedback opportunities.

Staff are trained and apply the restorative practice in their relationships with students. This is a values-based collaborative approach in dealing with conflict. Wrongdoers are given an opportunity to repair the hurt they have caused and victims an opportunity to express their feelings and be included in the resolution of issues that have hurt them.

The school recognises the power of games to improve the emotional intelligence of children. We use Play is The Way strategies to help children develop positive social skills.​​
