The Curriculum Support Team works closely with the teaching staff to ensure the individual needs of students are being catered for in the classroom from entry to Year 12. Their role is to provide in-class support, small group withdrawal and individual tuition in the areas of literacy and numeracy. The Curriculum Support Team also provides teaching staff with student profiles which outline individual students’ learning needs and teaching strategies best suited to meet these needs.
Student progress is monitored closely and appropriate intervention is provided as necessary. Personalised Education Plans (PEPs) are put in place for students needing an adjusted program. These are reviewed regularly, generally each term. Special provisions for examinations and assessment tasks are organised in conjunction with the Board of Studies for students who require additional assistance. Our comprehensive approach and focus on the individual help ensure that our students’ needs are consistently met.
Our teachers recognise that deep thinking is the essence of creativity and a critical ingredient in every significant learning experience and seek to provide students with opportunities to resolve complex real-world problems.
The Study Boost program provides assistance with homework, assignments and study across all subject areas. Held after school, Study Boost teachers can also provide assistance with literacy and numeracy as part of this service. Students who require additional help with Mathematics can attend Maths Tutorials.
