The Learning Centre

Specialist support classes cater for students with moderate to high learning and support needs - including students with: intellectual disability, mental health disorder, autism spectrum disorder, physical disability, sensory impairment, behaviour disorders.

Every specialist class has a teacher and a school learning support officer. Class teachers – in consultation with parents and carers and allied health professionals, where appropriate – are responsible for planning personalised learning and support for each student.

Students in specialist support classes have the opportunity to participate in the school and community activities their school offers, on the same basis as students in regular classes. Students also have access to: itinerant support teacher (hearing or vision), support teachers transition, specialist provisions available to students in regular classes including disability provisions from the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards NSW for practical support in examinations, access to transport assistance under the Assisted School Travel Program

For students enrolled in specialist classes in regular schools, there is the flexibility for them to undertake some of their learning in other regular classes in the same school. This is largely dependent upon the resources available and the personalised learning and support needs of the students.
