At Chrysalis the Learning Support Team is a whole school planning and support process. It is formed with the purpose of addressing the learning support needs of an individual student and groups of students through the coordination, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of educational programs within our school.
Inclusion is about making sure that each and every student feels welcome and that their unique needs and learning styles are attended to and valued. The purpose of all education is to ensure that students gain access to knowledge, skills, and information that will prepare them to contribute to Australia’s communities and workplaces.
Who is involved:
A prime function of the Learning Support Team is to determine that the needs of students in the school are being met. This is achieved through the team facilitating collaborative planning between teachers, support staff, parents and students.
Membership of the Learning Support Team is determined according to local needs. However, in general, the team may include:
- Education Manager
- Education specialist
- Extra Lesson Practitioner
- Literacy & Numeracy Coordinator
- Teacher representatives
- Parents and carers participate as necessary
Participation will vary according to the needs and function of the team at a particular time.
