St Lucy’s the experts in Special Education for Year 5

Welcome to our special education program for year 5 students! Are you a parent or guardian looking for the perfect education program catered to your child’s specific needs? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Our special education program for year 5 students has been specifically designed to provide each and every student with the support, care, and attention they need to thrive academically and socially. Our dedicated team of educators has years of experience working with students who have learning and developmental difficulties, and they are committed to creating a safe, nurturing, and inclusive environment for all students.

How Special Education for Year 5 students differs at St Lucy’s.

We understand that special education is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Each student has their own unique set of challenges and strengths, and we work with families to develop individualised education plans (IEPs) that meet the specific needs of each student. Our curriculum is designed to be accessible and engaging, and we use a range of teaching strategies and resources to support student learning. 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.

How does St Lucy’s Balance our classes to get the best out of Students

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.

How to enrol your Year 5 Special Needs student at St Lucy’s

If you’re interested in enrolling your child in our special education program, we have spaces available in our 2023 and 2024 classes. Our classes are small, with a low student-to-teacher ratio, so your child will receive the personalised attention and support they need to thrive. We also work closely with families to ensure that everyone is involved in the learning process, and we welcome parent and guardian involvement in our program.
