Teaching and learning

The programs offered by Beenleigh Special School focus on the long term goal of developing skills to maximise students’ independence and to prepare them for life beyond the school environment.

The curriculum that guides teacher planning and learning experiences for students in year P-10 is the Australian Curriculum. The focus for students in Years 11 and 12 is on futures planning and post-school. This is achieved through an individualised curriculum, using the Guidelines for Individual Learning as a framework. At the end of each semester, student progress is formally documented and reported to parents/carers.

All students at Beenleigh Special School have an Individual Curriculum Plan (ICP), or for Senior Secondary students a Senior Education Transition Plan. Education teams work together to implement the ICP, and constantly monitor and evaluate each student’s progress. 

Students and staff at Beenleigh Special School access a variety of off-campus environments to enhance the delivery of programs. These may include hydrotherapy centres, environmental education facilities and practical pre-vocational centres.
