BALCATTA SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION SUPPORT PROGRAM
COMMUNITY INFORMATION SESSION
At Balcatta Senior High School, we have a long and rich history of providing students with an
inclusive and enriching education experience, embracing diversity and valuing difference. Our
school is situated 11km North West of the CBD and is the school of choice for students seeking
access to our highly sought after Gifted and Talented programs within a thriving culture of
inclusivity. Our teachers and support staff know their students and are committed to creating
positive and engaging learning experiences, supporting students to achieve to their full potential.
From the commencement of 2021, Balcatta Senior High School will be launching a new inclusive
Education Support Program, designed to provide a comprehensive education experience for
students with special education needs. Students will have access to learning programs with their
same aged peers and will additionally be provided with scaffolded curriculum support, small group
intervention, individual therapy and access to life skills programs tailored to support students
beyond their formal school years.
Students enrolled in the inclusive Education Support Program will have access to the
internationally recognised ASDAN curriculum, evidence based literacy and numeracy intervention,
self-regulation and personal care programs and specialist learning area classes. All programs are
tailored to meet the needs of the individual and are designed to scaffold learning, promote
independence, build confidence and secure pathways to a fulfilling future. High staff to
student ratios in targeted teaching programs ensure students receive the additional academic,
emotional and social support required to achieve to their full potential. A positive behaviour support
approach across the school creates consistent learning environments with clear expectations in
which every student can learn, grow and succeed.
Our $50 million building and refurbishment project will be finalised by the end of 2020 and is set to
increase opportunities for all students. They will have access to state of the art facilities and
purpose built learning areas designed to cater for the needs of all learners.
A community information session outlining details of the inclusive Education Support Program will
be held at Balcatta Senior High School on Tuesday 3 November at 5.00pm in the Performing
Arts Theatre (access off Amelia Street).
