Learning support

The Learning Support Faculty take responsibility for the learning needs of individual students in all years.

Our aim is to promote self esteem, participation, confidence and challenge in learning for students with different and particular learning or support needs.

The faculty consists of 1.8 Learning and Support Teachers (LaST) and 5 Student Learning Support Officers (SLSO). The LaST provide in class support through team teaching, assistance with provisions in assessment tasks/exams and at times, where required, withdrawal of small group or individual students to develop their skills in a particular area. In addition to this, the faculty work and consult on a needs basis with a range of support agencies and specialist personnel in order to provide adequate teaching and learning strategies for individual student learning and support needs.

Consultation with parents/carers, student and necessary personnel is an important process to devise a Personalised Learning and Support Plan (PLASP). The purpose of the PLaSP is to support student success. It is prepared where the student's learning and support needs meet the broad definition of a disability as stated in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the functional impact of the student's learning and support need results in the school actively addressing the student's specific individual education needs.

As partners in the process, you gain valuable insight into your child's successes and challenges at school. Please contact the school to arrange a meeting regarding your child's learning and/or support need.
