What is Inclusive Education?
Students experience inclusive education when they can access and fully participate in learning, alongside their similar-aged peers. Students are supported by reasonable adjustments and teaching Strategies tailored to meet their individual needs. Inclusion is embedded in all aspects of school life, and is supported by culture, policies and everyday practices.
Our Vision at Arundel State School
Arundel State School is committed to providing an inclusive learning environment for ALL students, in all aspects of school life. The Inclusion team assists and strives to ensure all students achieve success inside and outside of the classroom. Staff have many duties and responsibilities which have a centralised focus on offering support to students who require additional educational provisions to access the school curriculum.
Special Education Programs (SEP) at our school are delivered through an inclusive model. This model reflects a team approach involving the classroom teachers, Inclusion teachers, and teacher aides working alongside each other to support the needs of our students. Program delivery involves the planning and delivery of appropriate adjustments in order to meet the needs of individual learners.
We offer intensive case management of students who require additional support, assist students to navigate school procedures and events as well as enhancing their social and communication skills.
Children eligible for support under the Education Adjustment Program must have been diagnosed/verified with an Intellectual Disability (ID), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Speech Language Impairment (SLI), Physical Impairment (PI), Vision Impairment (VI) and/or Hearing Impairment (HI).
Our commitment to Inclusive Schooling Practices at Arundel State School is by enabling students to:
Access and participate in a high-quality education and fully engage in the curriculum along-side their similar-aged peers.
Learn in a safe and supportive environment, free from bullying, discrimination or harassment.
Achieve academically and socially with reasonable adjustments and supports tailored to meet their learning needs.
