At Stretton State College it is our shared belief that every child is an individual with unique potential, capabilities and talents. We believe that every student has the ability to accomplish their personal best and flourish as a member of our college community.
The Department of Education’s Inclusive Education Policy and the Stretton State College Positive Education framework are the pillars on which this collective belief is built. We are committed to the notion of affording every student the opportunity to access and participate in all college programs ‘on the same basis’ as their peers. This is achieved through a whole school approach to learning where high expectations are set for all, diversity is celebrated and all students are engaged in an appropriate curriculum in the least restrictive environment. This affords each student the opportunity to attain their maximum potential.
"Inclusive education means that students can access and fully participate in learning, along-side their similar age peers, supported by reasonable adjustments and teaching strategies tailored to meet their individual needs. Inclusion is embedded in all aspects of school life, and is supported by culture, policies and every day practices." (Department of Education, 2019)
