St Francis Xavier College is committed to offering an inclusive learning program for all students, with a particular focus on supporting the needs of students with disability. All children are welcomed as they are and supported to reach their full potential.
Every child deserves a full opportunity to learn, pursue goals, develop important life skills and succeed while at school. While that can be more difficult for some students with disability, our inclusive education program is designed to give everyone the chance they deserve to have a positive and fulfilling school experience.
Staff at St Francis Xavier College are educated and trained to work appropriately with students who have different needs, helping them to feel supported and encouraged in everything they do. Helping students find success will build their confidence and self-esteem, while simultaneously giving them important knowledge they can take into future endeavours.
To ensure we can continue providing the best possible inclusive education program, St Francis Xavier College participates in the National Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) on School Students with Disability. The data collection is a count of the number of students who receive additional adjustments or help at school because of a disability. Once it has been decided that a student should be counted in the NCCD, school leaders then choose a relevant disability group and one of four levels of help that has been given to the student.
The NCCD helps the Government plan for the needs of students with disability, ensuring that schools are well-equipped to cater to every student’s individual needs. For more specific details, we recommend reading the NCCD Information Sheet for Parents, Carers and Guardians, as provided by the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria.
