There are several enrolment options for students with a disability. Students with a confirmed disability may be enrolled in any one of the following:
regular classes (subject to standard enrolment procedures)
support classes in regular schools (subject to placement panel procedures)
special schools (subject to placement panel procedures).
The School Principal at your local mainstream school, in consultation with the school's Learning and Support Team, will assist you to find the right schooling option for your child, taking into account your choice, your child's specific additional learning and support needs and proximity to local specialist services.
After making an appointment with the principal at your local mainstream school, gather your child's recent medical assessments to take to this meeting.
When a child is enrolled in a support class or a special school this process is known as a placement panel.
How to enrol
When you’re ready to enrol your child in our school, contact us. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.
Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.
Distance education schools also provide single subjects for students in Years 9 to 12 to enhance curriculum choice. Please contact us for details.
