Individual student needs

We all know that children develop and progress academically at different rates. At St Columba’s, teachers differentiate to meet the individual needs of students and monitor students continually to ensure they are making progress, keeping parents informed about that progress.

When children are not progressing as well as they should, the teacher meets with the student wellbeing team to look at their learning.


The team supports the teacher through undertaking assessments and/or setting up an individual learning program (ILP). Often a Program Support Group (PSG) is established which brings the parents, teachers, the student wellbeing coordinator and the principal together to discuss how we can assist the child’s learning.

Some students receive disability funding from the Catholic Education Office. These students always have an ILP and regular PSG meetings.
