Children that need extra support in their learning are catered for in a range of support programs.
Learning Assistance Program: a student-centred program providing individual support for students through the positive support of volunteers.
Reading Recovery: an early intervention program that targets children who are identified as having reading difficulties after one year at school. Children receive daily lessons in a one-on-one teaching situation and after completing the program, the children’s reading progress is monitored for three years.
Guided Reading: this is an approach where students are grouped to read according to their reading stage and have the opportunity to apply literacy skills and strategies they have been introduced to.
Reciprocal Reading: focuses on a specific structure that is based on four strategies - summarising, questioning, clarifying, and predicting as a means of better reading comprehension
EAL/D support for students whose first language is a language or dialect other than English and require additional support to develop proficiency in Standard English
