By offering additional support for learning – including adjustments to teaching, learning and assessment activities – our schools cater for every student's individual needs.
Most students with disability and additional learning and support needs will follow the regular curriculum and will participate in learning experiences based on content of the regular syllabus set by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) and its expected learning outcomes. Some students will work to different outcomes in consultation with their parents and carers.
Adjustments to teaching and learning
Some students may require additional support, including adjustments to teaching, learning and assessment activities in line with their individual education needs.
Consultations between the student, parents or carers and school take place before any adjustments are made.
Students with disability and additional learning and support needs are monitored by the school's learning and support team. This ongoing review process – which includes parents or carers – informs planning for adjustments and ongoing support.
At all times, parents or carers are encouraged to work with their child's teacher and the school's learning and support team so they can contribute their thoughts, have their questions answered or any concerns addressed.
