Support for students with additional needs

We have a range of educational options to support students with learning needs that require additional support.

Every student is entitled to attend a NSW public school. If our school is your local school and your first preference, we suggest you talk to our principal to discuss your son's or daughter's needs and options.

Following your discussion, their learning needs will be assessed so that decisions can be made about whether they would be best suited to learning:

  • in a regular class with additional support, or
  • in a special class in a regular or special school.

You will be involved in any decision about class placement and support options.

After enrolment, we will work with you and your son or daughter to continually review their learning needs at each stage of their education.

Enrolling in school

Starting a new school is a big step for all students and their families. If you are thinking about enrolment, we can help with your son or daughter's transition to our school. Please contact our principal to make an appointment.

You might like to use our school finder to research regular and special schools that have support classes.

Already at school

If you have concerns about your son or daughter's development or progress at school, or if their learning needs have changed, please contact the principal, so we can best cater for your needs.

Transition planning for Kindergarten to Year 7 students

Our planning is focused on the transitions that occur from entry into Kindergarten and from Year 6 going into high school.
