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.
