Inclusive Education

All Catholic schools of the Archdiocese of Brisbane are committed to Inclusive Education and strategic renewal principles and practices that assist students with particular support needs within a whole school curriculum.

The principles of Inclusive Education provide the flexibility to respond to the particular needs of students as required at any given time through a range of effective educational programs based upon:

  • The diverse needs of students.
  • The centrality of the classroom teacher as the coordinator of students’ teaching and learning needs.
  • A knowledge of teaching and learning principles and practices that enable students to access the curriculum.
  • Authentic consultation with teachers, students, parents and relevant others about the impact of the student’s ability to access the curriculum.
  • An understanding of the organisational structures and processes required to engage students in learning.

St Peter Claver has an Inclusive Education team that includes a Coordinator, Learning Support Teachers, and Guidance Counsellors. Each professional has key partnership and case management responsibilities. Their roles determine support for teachers, parents, consultants and other professionals by fostering a culture that enhances educational outcomes for all students.
