Learning Support

St John the Baptist Catholic School provides a caring, nurturing environment in which every student is recognised as an individual with unique strengths.

We genuinely value and nurture each child. We believe every student deserves the opportunity to access all aspects of the curriculum at a level of challenge that is appropriate for them.

The Living Learning Leading Framework gives us a foundation for understanding what we do in Catholic Education – who we are, what we value and how we partner with our families to ensure our students thrive.

At the heart of our framework is our commitment to our students and our understanding of all people – we see them as ‘thriving people, capable learners, leaders for the world God desires.’

The Living Learning Leading Framework underpins everything we do, ensuring our students develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive in a rapidly changing and complex world.

We are very aware that all children have different learning styles and needs, and within each classroom setting, there is a vast array of learning abilities. 
We have a number of programs and support structures in place to assist students, and we work closely with families to achieve the best outcome for each child.

Inclusive Education

Our Deputy Principal oversees our Inclusive Education program. This includes working with Catholic Education Office Consultants, allied health professionals, families and staff in order to develop Personal Plans for Learning (PPL’s) and programs to support children with specific learning needs.

Education Support Officers

We have a number of Education Support Officers (ESO's) on staff, who work with children to support their learning in class (Tier 1 support) and in small group interventions (Tier 2 support).

School Chaplain and School Counsellor

We have a School Chaplain and School Counsellor on staff, who are available to both children and families to discuss any issues or concerns they might be having within the school or at home.
