Learning Support

Our Learning Support Program is a multi-layered program designed to meet the needs of specific students as well as providing collaborative support in terms of the teaching and learning class programs.

Children who have had a diagnosis identifying a learning disability receive regular, ongoing 1:1 or in class support, from the Learning Support Teacher. Children who are identified by their teacher as requiring support or extension in their learning, can be assisted in a variety of ways. They could receive 1:1 or small group support from the Teacher’s Aide, the Learning Support Assistant or the Learning Support Teacher. Once the class teacher has discussed this with the Learning Support Teacher and the Principal, a program is prepared outlining the particular focus for that child and how long the intervention will last. This intervention can last from one term to more if required. The Learning Plans typically support the students in areas of Literacy or Numeracy.
