Students with a disability

Teacher working with a student

Turner School is a unique school that offers an educational program to mainstream children and children with a disability in an environment of inclusion. Differences are celebrated and adjustments are made so that all children can access and participate in all activities at school.

Disability education placements at Turner are coordinated by the Directorate's Disability Education central office.

We have a variety of student support models at Turner. Individual Learning Plans are developed in collaboration with families. Student needs are reviewed at transition points during a student's schooling at Student Centred Appraisal of Needs meetings. The process ensures that students receive the support they require to access school programs and participate in all aspects of school life.

Turner School is supporting families as they move to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Our Disability Education Coordinator regularly liaises with families and therapists.
