Clinton State School Special Education Program
(SEP) has a role in the lives of students with disabilities and their families
in supporting the students to achieve success in the school environment. Our
vision and principles reflect and align with the whole school vision of the importance
of the development of inclusive practices that will enable students to achieve
the skills required to become life-long learners in a global community. The
SEP, through its programs, aspires to enable learning in all areas of the
curriculum from academics, to alternate sports programs as well as personalised
programs for students with disabilities.
The SEP staff are committed to ensuring students
with disabilities engage with the P-6 Curriculum opportunities to
achieve within their year level cohort. The Special Education Program
encourages collaboration within the whole school and broader community to
ensure students have equitable access to academic and social learning
opportunities. We believe that all students have the potential to achieve their
goals and Individual Student Plans as well as Individual Learning Plans are
formulated to support this practice. This includes providing support for
students in the mainstream class, working collaboratively with classroom
teachers in the creation of differentiated unit plans to ensure adjustments for
students with disabilities are made, and programs commensurate with the
students’ developmental needs are catered for.
The SEP comprises of a fulltime head of
special education services (HOSES), support teachers and a core of teacher
aides who work with the students in a range of settings. Staff liaise with a range
of external agencies, medical personnel and therapists to help cater for and
manage students’ individual needs.
We have a strong commitment to maintaining a
supportive and inclusive environment that enables each child to feel safe,
confident and happy at school.
