Inclusive Education

At Sacred Heart Primary School, we ensure all learning abilities, levels and needs are catered for in a variety of ways. We know that all children learn differently and we offer learning support inside and outside the classroom.

We have a Learning Support Teacher (LST) who works alongside the classroom teachers and school counsellor to ensure the best outcomes for all students. This is accomplished by

  • developing and modifying programs to meet individual or group learning needs in the relevant curriculum areas
  • identifying children who require extension outside the regular classroom curriculum
  • identifying children with special needs through testing, observation and teacher referral.

Families also have access to additional teaching consultants and therapists in the areas of reading, numeracy, speech, occupational therapy, audiology and guidance counsellors through the Toowoomba Catholic Schools Office.
