Avoca Beach Public School, along with all Australian schools are taking part in a National Consistent Collection of Data (NCCD) on school students with a disability. This collection of data will assist us in ensuring all students take part in all school activities on the same basis as students without a disability.
Avoca Beach Public School is dedicated to ensuring all students have effective and differentiated learning programs to ensure all students have the ability to succeed at school.
By law schools are required to make reasonable adjustments where needed to assist students with disability. These responsibilities are outlined in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005. At Avoca Public School learning adjustments could be in the form of extra time to finish tasks, small group instructions, 1:1 support time, Learning and Support Teacher assistance or physical adjustments made to the environment to better support students. Students do not need to have a diagnosed disability to receive learning adjustments; however students receiving these do come under the National Consistent Collection of Data.
These learning adjustments are significant to their learning program and assist their learning style. Should you wish to discuss adjustments that might benefit your child please talk to your child's class teacher.
The NSW Department of Education and Communities will provide data to the Australian Government from all NSW public schools in such a way that no individual student or school will be able to be identified. In this way, we will ensure the privacy and confidentiality of all students.
The National Consistency Collection of Data (NCCD) will take place in Term 2 and will not affect your child in any way. They will not be required to undertake any additional testing.
Please feel free to call the school to discuss this further.
