Supporting Students with Disabilities

The College collaborates with parents, carers and students to ensure that students with disability can participate in College life on the same basis as students without disability.

Where there is an identified need or requirement resulting from disability, the College engages in a collaborative planning process with the family. This is led by a Learning Support Teacher. The purpose of this process is to consult the family to understand the student’s specific needs and requirements at school, collaborate with other healthcare professionals or educators with respect to those needs, and identify potential solutions or adjustments to genuinely meet those needs. 

The collaborative planning process typically results in any adjustments required being recorded in a document called an Individual Plan (IP). A draft IP is first shared with the family for their confirmation before being shared with class teachers. Most IPs are reviewed twice per year with the family. The Learning Support Teacher is the family’s main contact regarding the IP’s implementation and review.

The Disability Standards for Education

The College's approach to disability is informed by the Standards- legislation that describes a school’s obligations and the rights of students with a disability. We uphold the rights of students with disability to participate in College life, access curriculum, and receive general support on the same basis of students without disability. We affirm the rights of students with disability to access specialised support and enjoy an environment free from harassment or victimisation. 

A concise summary of the Standards can be found here.

How to access supports and adjustments for your child

If students or parents/carers need help on a matter regarding supports or adjustments related to disability, they can get in touch with their main teacher contact at the College. Alternatively, you can email the Head of Learning Support.

Complaints process

If you have a complaint about the College, please submit the details on our online feedback form and a College representative will be in touch shortly.
