Students with learning difficulties and disabilities will have differing levels of educational need, which may require the provision of one or more educational support services over varying periods of time. Beverly Hills Girls High School is fortunate to have a Learning Support Team which plays a key role in supporting classroom teachers to ensure student learning needs are met.
The Learning Support Team focusses on addressing the learning needs of students by ensuring that collaborative planning and programming occurs, that effective implementation strategies are in place, that available and appropriate school resources are being utilised, and that monitoring, assessment and reporting strategies have been developed.
The Learning Support Team considers the type and levels of support students with disabilities and learning difficulties require, addressing their curriculum, communication, social skills, personal care and safety and mobility needs. The team identifies and brings together key personnel within the school community who are most suitable to support the classroom teacher in meeting the student’s learning requirements. The Learning Support Team liaises with the Student Welfare Team.
