Learning Support


​In order to support students with educational or other needs, several specialist teachers are employed:

Learning Support Teacher.

The Support Teacher (Inclusive Education) works collaboratively with the members of the school community, and other outside agencies, as required, for the benefit of students. Generally this occurs in three key areas consultancy, student support and professional practice.


Guidance Primary Counsellor.

In primary school educational psychology services are delivered to clusters of schools. The guidance counsellor delivers direct services to schools providing consultancy on behaviour management, psycho-educational assessment and counselling and preventative initiatives.


English as an additional language or dialect (EAL/D).

An EAL/D teacher is employed when students attend the school with no English or not enough to make learning in the classroom meaningful.
