Student Support

Through a documented Negotiated Education Plan, learning support is provided for students identified with special needs, under the Department’s Disability policy.These plans are developed in partnership with the family and reviewed annually.

The Student Review Team (SRT) which includes an Assistant Principal, Department Psychologist, Speech Pathologist, Behaviour Coach, Special Educator and Attendance officer reviews the progress of these students each term and ensures that these students receive the most effective support.

School Service Officers (SSOs) also support students not qualifying for a Negotiated Education Plan. They work with students in small like need groups. implementing a variety of research-based literacy intervention programs. This includes a speech program for Receptions, MiniLit for year ones, GoLit for year 2/3’s and SuperLit for year 4/5/6/7 students.

To support Numeracy, Maths for Learning inclusion is implemented for year 1/2/3 students and Quick Smart Numeracy for our Year 4/5/6/7 students.

Groups of senior students also participate in an extension maths program Maths Olympiad each week.
