Learning Support

As an inclusive school, the aim of GSG's Learning Support programme is to provide for the diverse needs of students in an educational environment where there is respect, tolerance and encouragement.

The GSG Learning Support Team works with all sub-schools to identify students with learning difficulties and special needs, providing support to address those needs. In consultation with the Learning Support Coordinator, teachers provide modified learning programmes designed to meet the special needs of individual students.

The GSG Learning Support Team:

  • Provides a basic level of direct support for children with special needs;
  • Provides individual and small group support, where needed;
  • Assesses students who may be at risk in literacy and numeracy;
  • Writes Individual Education Plans (IEPs) for students with special needs;
  • Provides resources and teaching strategy support for classroom teachers with students with special needs and or learning difficulties;
  • Provides or organises professional assessment of current and prospective students with special needs and or learning difficulties;
  • Case manages students with special needs, including regular parent conferences with relevant teaching staff and external agencies, such as school psychologist, occupational therapist or allied health professionals;
  • Assists in whole school literacy planning, focusing on students at risk;
  • Provides pastoral care support for students with special needs and students at educational risk and assists with the implementation of behaviour management plans where necessary; and
  • Implements best teaching and learning practices that reflect an inclusive model of education across Learning Areas.
