At St. John’s, we proudly and actively embrace learner difference and diversity. We are committed to creating learning environments that are inclusive, supportive, evidence-informed and respectfully empower our diverse learners.
Our educators, the Learning and Teaching team and the Care Team monitor student growth and implement adjustments and additional learning support when required and in consultation with children and families. This includes but is not limited to:
Personalised Learning Plans (PLPs)
Additional Target Groups and Reinforcement Groups
Program Support Group Meetings (PSGs)
Transition Support (into Prep and into Year 7)
Intervention Programs (Literacy and Numeracy
Lunchtime Clubs and additional adult support during break times
This year, St. John’s is lucky enough to have access to Allied Health Professionals (Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Psychologist) who support children identified by educators and the Care Team and in consultation with families.
In August each year, schools across Australia are required to complete the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD.) The NCCD counts the number of students who receive additional adjustments or support at school due to disability. The data also helps teachers, principals, education authorities and governments better support students with disabilities at school. Our St. John’s NCCD Team, submits our student data based on evidence collected over the year and on a rigorous moderation process.
