Our students are supported in a number of ways at Taranganba State School.
Students with a disability
Every school day, at Taranganba State School, our
teachers and school leaders strive to maximise the outcomes of students with
disability by engaging them in learning to develop their skills for their
future. Making sure all students have access to high quality learning
opportunities, focused on their individual needs, is a priority for our school.
We strive to lift the learning outcomes for students with disability by
continuing to build the capability of our staff, by setting high expectations
of students and supporting them to reach their full potential, and through
productive partnerships with our parents.
Student support is provided through a Hub model with Engagement Teachers working within year level teams to assist teachers in making adjustments to learning for children. Teacher aides also make up a part of the Hub and are allocated to support depending of the needs of the class and group.
Student Services team meets twice weekly for students referred by classroom teachers. Teachers will discuss your child's learning needs with you before completing a referral. Parental permission will be required for a referral to be submitted.
Teachers receive a follow up email to document the decision making following the referral. Adjustments are recorded on OneSchool as a personalised learning plan and/or a support provision.
Guidance Office referrals are prioritised through Student Services meetings. A service agreement with the Guidance Officer is completed annually to detail their role in the Student Services process.
If a matter is urgent please contact the Principal to action immediate support through the Guidance Officer.
