Our school strives to cater for the needs of all students. A Learning Support Teacher assists teachers to cater for students who are experiencing a specific learning difficulty. This teacher also provides resources and programmes to enhance and extend the development of all children.
Classroom teachers work closely with the Learning Support Teachers. Parents who have any concerns regarding the progress of their child, or difficulties they may be experiencing, are encouraged to refer their concerns to the classroom teacher in the first instance, who may engage the Learning Support Teacher if necessary.
Our inclusion policy states that Catholic education authorities and schools will:
- be accountable in terms of church, educational and legal imperatives that support inclusive practices
- create conditions to support successful outcomes for all students
- promote collaborative planning and decision making to include students, families and educators as part of the community
- acknowledge the importance of using the knowledge and skills of all educators, including learning support personnel, and promote collaborative partnerships with agencies outside Catholic education.
