At St Lucy’s School, we believe in the power of inclusive education. We understand that every child is unique, and we strive to create a nurturing and inclusive environment where all students, including Year 2 students with special needs, can thrive. Our dedicated team of educators, therapists, and support staff work collaboratively to provide a comprehensive and tailored education experience for each student.
As a specialised school catering to Year 2 students with disabilities, St Lucy’s School is committed to delivering exceptional special education programs. Our curriculum is specifically designed to meet the diverse needs of our Year 2 students, fostering their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. We offer a stimulating and engaging learning environment that encourages exploration, creativity, and personal growth. While St Lucy’s follows the NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority) curriculum, we thoughtfully design teaching and learning experiences to address the diverse learning needs of our students at this crucial stage of their education journey.
At St Lucy’s School, we understand that individualised support is crucial for the success of students with special needs. That’s why we develop customised Individualised Education Plans (IEPs) for each student. Our team of experienced educators collaborates with parents and other professionals to create targeted goals and strategies that address the unique needs and abilities of every Year 2 student. We believe that personalised attention is the key to unlocking their full potential.
Effective communication is fundamental to a child’s development and success. St Lucy’s School offers comprehensive speech therapy services to support Year 2 students in developing their language and communication skills. Our certified speech therapists work closely with students, utilising evidence-based techniques and resources to enhance speech clarity, vocabulary, articulation, and social communication. We provide a supportive and enriching environment where students can build confidence in expressing themselves.
St Lucy’s School recognises the importance of occupational therapy in promoting independent living skills and overall well-being. Our dedicated occupational therapy team offers a range of interventions and activities to enhance fine motor skills, sensory integration, self-care, and motor planning for Year 2 students. We provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where students can develop the necessary skills to navigate their daily lives with confidence.
At St Lucy’s School, we have a deep commitment to supporting students with autism spectrum disorders. Our specialised autism support programs are designed to create a structured and supportive learning environment. Our team of professionals, including behaviour analysts and special education teachers, implements evidence-based strategies to support social interactions, communication, behaviour management, and academic progress. We aim to empower Year 2 students with autism to reach their full potential and lead fulfilling lives.
Selecting students based on their needs and the balance of the class is an important aspect of creating a successful learning environment at St Lucy’s. It is important that we take into consideration the unique learning needs of each student, as well as the overall balance of the class in terms of ability levels, personalities, and interests.
Ensuring that the class is balanced and diverse can help promote inclusivity and improve the overall learning experience for all students. Additionally, selecting students based on their specific needs can help provide more personalised attention and support, ultimately resulting in better academic outcomes. For this reason we have an extensive process at St Lucy’s and we not only take into consideration the needs of your child but also the needs of the year group, when considering enrolment.
