Diverse Learning Needs

At Mary Immaculate, we aim to cater for all students’ strengths and interests, and bring out the best in each individual. This is done in many areas and with a variety of learning experiences.

Students are provided with a variety of learning experiences. Differentiation of learning tasks occurs in all classrooms to support the varied abilities within the class. This can be in the form of modifications and scaffolds for individual or small group learning. Students with diagnosed health or learning difficulties, as well as those with imputed disabilities, have Individual Plans co-created between staff and parents to ensure their specific needs are being met. 

Consultation of Health Professionals

On occasion, parents may seek advice from health professionals to support the learning of their child (Paediatrician, Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Audiologist).

Copies of reports compiled by these professionals and provided to the School Office are extremely valuable in supporting staff to devise personalised plans and implement supportive intervention at school.  

The findings of these reports may also assist the school to seek additional systemic support from the Catholic Education Office.
