Student Learning and Support

Learning Support Officers

Our School Learning Support Officers provide support for students with identified diverse learning needs including disability in classrooms and other learning environments under the direction and supervision of a teacher to support the achievement of educational outcomes. Our expert paraprofessionals provide support that includes student welfare, health and wellbeing activities as required.  In addition School Learning Support Officers may provide specific support for students by running specific intervention programs. Mrs Harris, Mrs Betts, Mrs Dwyer, Mrs Chown and Miss Carthew provide invaluable support to our students and teachers and are valued members of our staff.

Intensive Learning Support Program

The COVID ILSP initiative provides extra staffing in our school to meet the needs of students in literacy and numeracy that were disadvantaged by the move to remote and/or flexible learning. The intensive small group learning program builds upon effective collaboration with students and class teachers. Mrs May-Brell and Mrs Bowman are our COVID ILSP teachers and are responsible for monitoring the program. They are also responsible for assessing and reporting on the improvement of learning outcomes for the students participating in the small group tuition. These sessions are short in duration and target a specific skill to achieve intensive growth. Mrs May-Brell and Mrs Bowman analyse student data and pinpoint interventions driven by the latest educational research.

Learning and Support Teacher

Our Learning and Support Teacher Mrs Honeyman, provides direct and timely specialist assistance to students in mainstream classes with disability and additional learning and support needs and their teachers. Their work emphasises the needs of individual students, school priorities, evidence-based programs to assist students with additional learning and support needs. Mrs Honeyman uses a collaborative and consultative approach so that students, parents, and carers are actively involved in decision making. She is also the facilitator for NAPLAN and Check-Ins K-6. She further investigates student learning needs through a range of specific assessments, supports students and families at transitional points and liaises with a range of external paraprofessionals.
