A key touchstone of Edmund Rice Education - Inclusion - is woven within each of the College’s classrooms and faculties. Inclusive Education is when all students, regardless of any support needs they might have, receive high quality instruction, intervention and adjustments that enable them to succeed academically. At Rostrevor College, each student is considered on an individual basis to ensure all students can access school life and flourish.
The Inclusive Education Program at Rostrevor College caters primarily for students with learning difficulties and students with additional support needs. We provide a holistic approach to supporting the students where there is a clear collaborative partnership between the class teacher, Inclusive Education team, allied health professionals and parents and carers. This collective responsibility is documented in our Personalised Plan for Learning and a key feature of this documentation is student voice and family consultation. Students continue to be supported to express their views, make decisions and set goals on their personalised learning journey. Self-advocacy is valued and developed, with students continuously participating in decisions that affect their education at Rostrevor College.
