Specialist programs

Our vision is to provide clear policies and processes where students and staff have access to a range of support mechanisms that have a common goal of creating and working for a quality, supportive learning environment.

The Special Needs Team assesses and plans adjustments / support for students by the Guidance Officer, Special Education Teacher, Support Teacher Literacy and Numeracy, Speech Pathologist and Behaviour Advisory Visiting Teacher. Teachers or parents can request referral to the team. The team prioritise assessment according to level of need.

Aims of the Special Needs Team

  • provide clear and succinct processes for identifying students with individual needs

  • encourage the early identification of students 

  • clearly articulate the roles and responsibilities of support staff in the school

  • assist teachers in making appropriate adjustments to address the needs of students in their care 

The Intervention Team plans and provides intervention opportunities to focus on academic areas of need to boost performance.

The essential foundation of the Intervention Team is to provide a proactive, whole school framework for identifying and addressing the academic support of students.

Aims of the Intervention Team

  • establish individual, small group and whole school programs to address needs

  • embed intervention as an integral component of providing quality learning for students
