Students with Disabilities as identified through the NCCD (Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability) are supported at Victoria Point State High School through the Inclusive Education program. This resourcing allocation provides additional teaching and non-teaching staff to support students in the classroom environment with their peers, in line with A Whole School Approach to Support Student Learning
. Personalised Learning Plans (PLPs) are created for students which details relevant supports and adjustments that may be required in order for them to achieve success.
Additional support is
provided through Advisory Visiting Teachers (AVT) for students with a hearing,
vision or physical impairment, as well as a range of additional staff from within the region.
Where required, students may be allocated a Program Manager from within the Inclusive Eduction Teacher team who will act as the point of contact between school and home, and
facilitate adjustments and intervention where appropriate. Support may also
include, but is not necessarily limited to:
timetables where appropriate
modification (including assessment) where appropriate
reading assistance where necessary
with organisational / personal skills
Students in Years 11 and 12 have access to a specialist Transition Coordinator who is
able to assist with school based traineeships/apprenticeships, work experience
and TAFE courses, with providers that support students with disabilities.
programs are run each year for the students coming from local Primary schools.
These occur during Term 3 and include half day visits by the students to school
in order to decrease anxiety for the start of Year 7.
