The Teaching and Learning Support (TALS) Department offers support to those students who require additional educational provisions to access the school curriculum. The two support mechanisms are offered by the Learning Support Team and The Special Education Program.
Learning Support at Kenmore SHS focusses on supporting those students that have a recognised learning difficulty or disability or are falling below national benchmarks in literacy and numeracy. The students are identified for support by:
Collection of data from national testing, report cards and standardised assessment.
Feedback from parents, teachers and administration.
These students have their own Individual Learning Plan and teachers and classroom teachers ensure that provisions for these students are made as appropriate to the individual student.
The Special Education Program at Kenmore SHS is designed to support those students verified through Education Queensland with a disability. The categories of verification are:
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Hearing Impairment (HI)
Physical Impairment (PI)
Speech-Language Impairment (SLI)
Vision Impairment (VI)
Intellectual Impairment (II).
These students all following their own Individual Support Plan and the school provides the appropriate adjustments as outlined in their Educational Adjustments Profile. Each verified student has a case manager and the option of being enrolled in a Targeted Assistance Tutorial.
Those students who have a verified disability are required to have an enrolment interview with the HOSES. Please find contact information in the
Our staff section of the website.
