Teaching

The Glenleighden School delivers the Australian Curriculum with the support of a multidisciplinary team focused on targeted intervention. Allied health professionals, working with students, include speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, music therapists, and psychologist.

Education at Glenleighden involves specialist teaching methods and management approaches based on a detailed understanding of the processing characteristics and learning styles of each student. Personalised Learning Plan meetings are held with parents at least twice a year to ensure that the team and families fully understand the child’s unique educational and support needs.

Educational experiences are complemented by a range of extracurricular activities, including sports and lunchtime clubs, which cater for a range of student interests.

The school is organised into two sub schools:

S

Service

We put the interests of others above our own and actively seek out opportunities to help.
P

Passion

We love what we do and show this through our enthusiasm, energy and positive mindset.
E

Excellence

We have high expectations of ourselves and each other, and continually strive to be better tomorrow than we were today.
A

Accountability

We accept responsibility, do what is expected of us and are answerable to each other.
K

Kindness

We are friendly, generous and considerate in everything we do.
E

Empowerment

We deliberately enable others, develop their agency and voice, and are committed to their success.
R

Respect

We show through our everyday actions that we value others as unique individuals, entitled to our high regard and dignity; honouring their difference and contribution.
