The Learning Support Faculty is comprised of a Learning Support Coordinator, Learning Support Teacher/s, English as Additional Language/Dialect teacher, and several Learning Support Assistants. This team oversees the academic, physical and emotional needs of students identified as needing additional support.

Learning Support at St Paul's is inclusive and all students, including those with diagnosed disabilities, are supported in the mainstream classrooms. There is provision for withdrawal for students who require specific support with literacy, numeracy and curriculum support. In addition, emotional support and social development strategies are provided to students on a needs basis, in conjunction with our Leaders of Wellbeing.

The Learning Support Unit is open for student access during lunch. There is teacher supervision and support during that time to complete homework and assessment tasks in a safe and supportive environment.

Current programs running for withdrawal groups at the Learning Centre are: MacqLit, Corrective Reading and Cars and Stars, and for numeracy we have Cams and Stams, we also run social skills programs at varying times. A number of assistive technologies are utilised to support students with additional learning needs and disabilities to help access the curriculum eg: iPads, laptops C-Per readers.

The Learning Support Team work with the Leaders of Learning to provide Disability Provisions for students during examinations. This is in the form of readers, writers, extra time to work, rest breaks and separate supervision.

Support is available for English as Additional Language/Dialect students from our specialist teacher. This can be in the form of in-class support and/or withdrawal. The focus is on written, spoken and aural language development.
