Strathpine West State School is committed to providing inclusive education, this means that all students are provided with the opportunity to participate in the whole school experiencein the least restrictive way.
The school’s Student Support Services provide support to students who have been referred by their current or previous class teachers when needing additional support. Many of our students have additional needs that are managed by classroom teachers who make adjustments to the environment and learning experiences.
Children with additional needs such as learning difficulties, disabilities and social or emotional challenges are supported by Student Support Services to help them access their education on the same basis as their peers. Student Support Services also manage the supported play programs available at every break time.
All students at Strathpine West State School have the opportunity to access supported play programs. These occur in the different coloured STAR rooms around the school and include activities such as art and craft, computer games, board games, dance and outdoor games.
