Personalised learning and support

Schools have an obligation to ensure that students with disability and additional learning and support needs can participate in education on the same basis as their peers at every stage of their school life as per the Disability Standards for Education (2005) and the department's Inclusive Education Policy for students with disability.

Some students may require adjustments and support plans to help them to be successful at school. These must be made in consultation with students, parents/carers and school staff.

Parents and carers, teachers and school support staff, allied professionals, the community – and particularly students themselves – all have important roles to play.

See personalised support for student learning for further information.

The NSW Department of Education is committed to supporting all schools to undertake the required Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD). The NCCD is an annual data collection that requires information on the extent of adjustments made for students with disability.

See Nationally Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) for further information.
