The Student Support Group represents a partnership in the educational planning process between:
- the parents/guardians/carers of the student
- the parent/guardian/carer’s advocate
- the teacher/s
- the principal or nominee (to act as chairperson)
- the student (where appropriate).
The aims of the Student Support Group are to:
- ensure that those with the most knowledge of, and responsibility for the student, work together to establish shared goals for the student's educational future
- plan reasonable adjustments for the student to access the curriculum
- provide educational planning that is ongoing throughout the student's life
- monitor the progress of the student.
The Student Support Group is responsible for:
- identifying the student’s needs
- determining any adjustments to be made to the curriculum, teaching and learning
- planning an appropriate educational program
- developing a personalised learning and support plan
- discussing the plan with teachers and providing support to implement the learning plan
- providing advice to the principal concerning the additional educational needs of the student and what may be required to meet these needs
- reviewing and evaluating the student’s program once per term, and at other times if requested by any member of the group.
