Support Services

All government schools have access to support services such as speech pathologists and educational psychologists if required. Students who qualify may receive either speech therapy sessions or consideration for funded support such as allocation of integration aide time.

 

Banyule Primary School is fortunate enough to have our own resident provisional psychologist/counsellor who is available for such things as educational assessments, follow up guidance and family, small group or individual counselling as required.


We have several support staff who provide assistance to students with identified needs in literacy and numeracy across the whole school.

We have parent support groups for funded students to keep track of identified personal goals. We monitor the progress of these students quite rigorously and provide a differentiated program to cater for their needs.

 

Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) are provided for all students who may be identified as needing extra support to reach expected VELS levels OR to extend and challenge students who are achieving at a very high level. Personal goals are identified on these plans with an outline of what the school is doing to cater for their needs and suggested activities for you to do at home to support the teacher.

 

EXTENSION PROGRAM

Various extension programs are on offer for students who show a strength or interest in a particular area.  The focus for these classes will vary throughout the year. Participating students will be nominated by the class teachers.
