In this section you will find information on how Beaconsfield State School provides programs and initiatives related to child safety, learning support, students with disabilities, guidance and counselling.
Each year our staff utilise the services of our school adopt-a-cop and guidance officer to implement the "protective behaviours" program with our prep students.
Our school is serviced by two specialist teachers of literacy and numeracy who work with students in all classes. Their focus is developing the literacy and numeracy needs of all students in the classes that they visit. They also play a key role in supporting teachers with further ideas as to how to further develop the literacy and numeracy needs of their students.
Students with disabilities
Beaconsfield State School offers a comprehensive educational service meeting the needs of students with a disability with a dedicated special educational unit. The unit offers 3 dedicated special needs classes supporting the needs of our students with many of these students also spending part of each day integrated into mainstream classes. Complementing this service our special needs staff also support many other special needs students who are fully integrated within mainstream classes.
Guidance and counselling
Our school also offers a guidance and counselling service to our students through the staffing of a guidance officer who works in the school 5 days a fortnight. Our guidance officer offers invaluable support to our school community and is a very valued resource in our school, supporting the needs of our students, parents and staff.
Parent and community engagement framework
The department's Parent and community engagement framework helps students, schools, parents and the community to work together to maximise student learning and wellbeing. Research shows parent and community engagement that is effectively focused on student learning can deliver powerful outcomes (OECD, 2011).
