Each child is unique and learns differently. In some cases, children have specific learning difficulties and disabilities that require additional programs and support.
Our learning support team work with classroom teachers, parents and specialist teachers where needed, to ensure each student has the support they need for success and growth in their learning. The learning support team provides support by assisting students in the classroom, working with teachers to develop appropriate learning tasks, and assisting parents to access support from outside agencies.
We offer a focused literacy and numeracy program through Focus160 and additional support for students through our Reading Recovery and Extending Mathematical Understanding intervention programs.
Our classroom teachers also ensure student learning is relevant, engaging and meets each student’s needs and potential. They achieve this by identifying and building on individual student abilities, through appropriate targeted enrichment activities. This provides students with the opportunity to extend themselves.
