Learner Diversity

At OLPS we have a part-time learning support teacher whose responsibilities include the co-ordination of identification, diagnosis and support of students with identified needs. 

The Learning Support Teacher works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

In 2021,  Learning Support Assistants support students with a disability learning. The National Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) on OLPS students with a disability takes place every year. The NCCD is a collection that counts:

  • the number of students receiving an adjustment or help due to disability
  • the level of adjustment they are receiving to access education on the same basis as other students

Learning support encompasses students in the following categories:

  • Students with learning difficulties
  • Students at risk
  • Students with disabilities
  • Aboriginal students
  • Socio-economically deprived students
  • Students experiencing specific gender issues
  • English as an additional language/dialect (EAL/D)
  • Language Background other than English (LBOTE)
