Under the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act (1992), the Disability Standards for Education (2005) seek to ensure that education is made accessible to students with disabilities. Specifically the Standards address enrolment, participation, curriculum, student services and the elimination of harassment and victimisation.
Students identified with a disability or significant learning needs are required to be enrolled through a supported enrolment process. This is to ensure that the school is best placed to meet the student’s needs. This process will also include a member of our Learning Support Team and if required also Catholic Education Services.
Our school accesses support from Catholic Education’s advisory teachers, speech language pathologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, learning support teachers, student counsellors and Indigenous education officers. School communities also collaborate with a range of external agencies to enhance support of the individual needs of students. In this way, we engage in a holistic approach to supporting students.
