At CCPS we welcome all children and make the necessary adjustments to support their education. We are committed to creating a school community where all members of our school community are welcomed, accepted and treated equitably and with respect regardless of their backgrounds or personal attributes such as race, language, religious beliefs, gender identity, disability or sexual orientation so that they can participate, achieve and thrive at school.
Explaining inclusive education
Under legislation, schools are required to make reasonable adjustments to support all students with disabilities to fully participate in school, not just those eligible for targeted funding.
What is an adjustment?
An adjustment is simply a measure or action taken to assist a student to participate in education and training on the same basis as their peers.
An adjustment is ‘reasonable’ if it balances the interests of everyone affected, and ‘on the same basis’ means students with disability are provided with opportunities and choices that are comparable to those available to students without disability.
Student Support Group meetings and Integration Aides
Through the Program for Students with Disabilities CCPS run Student Support Groups once a term. These meetings are a forum to discuss the needs of children and set short term goals. The meetings bridge the gap between the school and the family to provide a stable environment for the child. The Assistant Principal, Integration Aide team leader and classroom teacher attend these meetings along with representatives from the family.
