Learning Support

At Dulwich Hill Public School, we have a range of options to support students who require additional support. If your child requires additional support, talk to the principal to discuss your child’s needs. Your child’s learning needs will be assessed so that decisions can be made together about how your child can best be supported.

DHPS has a strong and effective Learning Support Team comprised of appropriate school-based staff, including the Principal and the School Counsellor. Parents and outside agency personnel are involved in discussions and decisions to enhance learning.

School Learning Support Officers (SLSOs) are employed at DHPS to provide some additional, in-class and playground learning support to individuals and small groups of students. Other identified learning needs are met by the classroom teachers who provide adjustments to classroom programs and differentiated access to explicit teaching as required by policies and guidelines including Every Student Every School, the National Disabilities Framework and Local Schools Local Decisions. See the Principal, Deputy Principal, class teacher or Department of Education website for more information.
