Students with disabilities
Every student, regardless of ability and need for additional support, is entitled to an education and full access to our classes.
Students with disabilities and special needs are supported through a range of support measures in our French classes.
Parents or caregivers have a vital role to play in the work of the Learning and Support Team through discussing, planning and managing measures for their child's needs.
Where medical/hygiene measures beyond the training or expertise of our teachers are necessary, parents will become integral to the management of the student, ensuring best possible access to the educational program.
