Support for students with specific needs
Our Equity Leader has a dedicated team of educational support staff who support students with specific learning disabilities (SLDs), including those funded through the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD). This team works in conjunction with the students, their parents, teachers and Year Level Leaders to put together individual education plans (IEPs) and Learning Goals for the students. Our teachers constantly review our learning sequences and access professional development to support the learning of students with SLDs, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, etc.
We recognise that well-abled students need specific supports to be able to access and cultivate their ‘gifts’, to encourage them to engage mindfully with their education and foster a growth-mindset. The Gifted and Talented Students co-ordinators in our school assist staff to identify students who are very well-abled academically or in particular subject areas (e.g. art, sport, etc.).
With the student, their parents and teachers, the co-ordinators develop an individual education plan (IEP) for the students that takes into account their areas of strength, challenge and interest to develop long and short term learning goals. In this way, we aim to encourage our well-abled students to develop higher-order and critical thinking skills through curriculum enhancement tasks in the context of a mixed-ability classroom.
