Learning Support

Our team works hard to support students in order to maximise their learning opportunities.

Learning Support in Stage 4 is offered to students who need additional help.

The Learning Support staff rely on medical recommendations and a range of academic data to determine the support needs of students. The school then determines if a student should be placed in a specialised learning support class. The student’s progress is carefully monitored.

English and Mathematics lessons are conducted with a specialist teacher and are concurrent on the timetable with the mainstream English and Mathematics classes. The curriculum follows a similar pattern to that of the mainstream classes, but with an emphasis on skill-related outcomes as well as those required by NESA.

Additional assistance may also be provided across many other subjects,
including deploying teachers aides to partner with the class teacher in student learning.

School based testing of skills, such as reading and comprehension, may occur at various times throughout the student’s enrolment. This school-based testing by learning support staff is used to determine the needs and progress of individuals.
