Curriculum

At Claremont State Special School we believe all students can learn and have the right to learn through an innovative, current, fun and challenging teaching and learning program. The curriculum aims to lay the foundations for lifelong learning and training opportunities. We aim to develop independence in our students preparing them for life and work post school.

The curriculum is designed and implemented by a committed and enthusiastic team of professionals including classroom teachers, therapists, specialist teachers in music and physical education, and teacher aides.

During 2012 we are experiencing the Australian Curriculum in English, maths and science as well as continuing with essential learnings across the key learning areas of health and physical understanding, the arts and technology, studies of society and environment. The curriculum is differentiated to meet the unique learning needs of the student cohort.

An Individual Student Plan (ISP) is developed with parents and or carers for each student in the junior and middle school. The ISP priority goals will address the essential learning areas of literacy and or communication, and numeracy. Within the ISP, students' social emotional learning with an emphasis on improved behaviour will be addressed within the positive behaviour support plan. Students requiring support with the development of independence skills will receive support from the school through daily routines and transitions.

A Senior Education Transition Plan (SET Plan) is developed in partnership with the parent and or carer, student and the school in the year the student enters year 10 or its equivalent. The SET Plan outlines the senior pathway for the student and transition to post school options. The plan is owned by the student and their family.
