  • Appropriate assessment and observation to determine individual needs.
  • Liaison with outside agencies, medical and allied health professionals.
  • Structured programs to meet specific needs.
  • Resources to compliment inclusive practices.
  • Personnel to assist classroom teachers with program delivery.
  • Developing and monitoring Individual Education Programs and Behaviour Plans.

The Support Team consists of:

  • A full time Support Teacher Inclusive Education
  • A part time Guidance Counsellor

As well as assisting classroom teachers within the classroom context the support Team is also responsible for catering for students with clearly defined special educational needs. Saints Peter and Paul’s follows the guidelines set out in Brisbane Catholic Education’s Special Enrolment process

Support A Reader

Saints Peter and Paul’s offers a Support-A-Reader Program for students in Years Two and Three.  This program is held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1.55-2.55pm. Individual students are selected by their class teacher and the Support Teacher Inclusive Education to read with a supportive adult for a twenty minute session. This provides the students with the opportunity to practise and develop their reading skills in the vital early years of learning. The students love to participate and benefit hugely from the sessions.

The success of the program relies on the generosity of our volunteers who consist of parents and members of our parish community. We welcome all volunteers. It is a great way to meet other members of the community as well as helping our young learners. All volunteers who are not parents at the school require a current Blue card. This can be arranged through the school office.
