Head of Department Inclusion: Marcia Power

Earnshaw State College provides a range of support programs and services for students including:


The Inclusive Learning Centre (ILC) works collaboratively with other faculties, students, parents and the wider school community to meet the needs of students with disabilities across Prep – 12 within the classroom as well as supporting literacy and numeracy development, social skills and work education.

Students with diverse needs at Earnshaw State College are offered support from their case manager, inclusion teachers and teacher aides.  Their classroom teachers also work with the Inclusion Team to cater for curriculum and individual student needs.

The level and type of support given to students is dependent on their individual needs and varies across subject areas and classroom settings and includes:

  • Collaborative planning with class teachers
  • In class support (if required)
  • Literacy and/or Numeracy program (if required)
  • Work skills program
  • Social Skills programs

Following consultation with parents/carers, school staff and/or an external specialist, decisions are made regarding each student's ability to access their current year level curriculum for each subject area and the most appropriate setting to maximise participation and success. Mostly:

  • Student can access same age curriculum in a mainstream class with adjustments.
  • Student can access same age curriculum in a mainstream class with adjustments but require some assistance from support staff.
  • Student can access curriculum at a lower/higher key juncture with parallel links to same age curriculum as students in a mainstream class with adjustments.
