Subjects and programs

Our campus comprises the Early Childhood Developmental Program (ECDP) and the main school, which is structured around Early Years, Middle School, Junior Secondary and Senior School phases of learning. Students are organised into class groups based on age, maturity, social/emotional needs and individual curriculum needs.
Class groupings range in size from 4 to 7 students in the main school and average 6 in the ECDP. Classes are primarily staffed with a teacher and one teacher aide.
The ECDP caters for children from birth to pre-prep age with a disability or suspected disability. The play based programs utilise the Early Years Curriculum. ‘Early Childhood Development Program’ has full details.
Red Hill Special School provides educational programs for students between prep age and school leaving age who have significant verified impairments in the area of intellectual functioning as well as physical or sensory impairments. These education programs are individually designed to cater for the specific needs of each student in addressing the Australian Curriculum. In each of the phases of learning, staff at Red Hill Special School considers how the curriculum can enhance the ability of the students to engage, relate and participate.
