Learning Support Team

The Learning Support Team (LST) consists of the Learning Support Team coordinator, the principal, school counsellor and a teacher representative from each stage.

The team meets fortnightly to discuss students with learning, behavioural, welfare and social needs.

The LST supports students identified on the National Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) framework for physical, social, emotional, sensory or cognitive disabilities.  Students are provided with support through reasonable adjustments to assist them to access and participate in education on the same basis as other students.

Equality before adjustments. Equity after adjustments have been made.

The four levels of adjustment in the NCCD are:

·       Quality Differentiated Teaching Practice (QDTP)

Minor adjustments

·       Supplementary

Students receive adjustments at specific times throughout the week

·       Substantial

Students receive essential adjustments and considerable assistance to the usual educational program at most times, on most days

·       Extensive

Students have very high support needs and are always provided with extensive targeted measures and sustained levels of intensive support.
