What is Inclusion at Centenary State High School?
Centenary State High School is committed to Inclusive Schooling Practices, focused on maximising the outcomes of all students through identification and reduction of barriers to learning. We are committed to setting high expectations, valuing and celebrating diversity; and employing high quality, evidence-based teaching practices focused on success for every student. Centenary State High School supports Education Queensland’s vision and the right for all students of all social, cultural, community and family backgrounds, and of all identities and abilities, to receive high quality education.
The Department of Education’s Inclusive Education Policy states:
Inclusive education means that every day in every classroom, every state school student is learning and achieving in a safe, supportive, inclusive and disciplined learning environment.
Inclusive education provides all students with access to high-quality schooling that is free from discrimination based on gender, language, sexual orientation, pregnancy, culture, ethnicity, religion, health, disability, socio-economic background or geographic location.
