Students with a disability

Centenary State High School’s Diverse Learning Department and Learning Support Department support students who have a verified disability and/or those students who meet the definition of disability including learning disability according to the Disability Discrimination Act (1992). We provide specialist educational services for all students with an Education Queensland verification. The school has a long history as a lighthouse school for students with vision impairment.

Centenary State High School supports the concept of a whole school approach to learning, allowing each student to access and participate in the school’s educational programs 'on the same basis’ as their peers. Appropriate educational adjustments are made to a student’s educational program and various levels of support are provided depending upon each student’s individual needs. Some student’s may need to access the curriculum at a different year level juncture to their peers. 

Reasonable Educational Adjustments

Many students with disability are able to achieve results commensurate with their peers, provided the necessary adjustments are made to the way in which they are taught and assessed.

It is widely accepted that the goals of curriculum and pedagogy in inclusive education should be about ensuring, as far as possible, that all students can participate in the same learning. 

The current P-12 Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Framework (P-12 CARF) is supportive of a whole school approach. This approach, within the Queensland context, has built on best-practice models including Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Response to Intervention (RTI).
