Student Support

At Lambert School we monitor each student’s progress and provide additional learning support if this is required. A support group including the parents, student, principal and learning support teacher is established to discuss the learning of the specific student. From these meetings an Individual Learning Program (ILP) is established and used as the basis for ongoing support. Our students have diverse and differing abilities that impel us as educators to seek the best ways to achieve equity and excellence. Partnerships between parents, students, and teachers are an integral part of the Individual Learning Program. Students who require differentiated education in order to reach their potential are catered for in a variety of ways. This may include adjustments in the curriculum and modifications to instruction.

If you have concerns about your child’s development or progress at school, or if they have special learning needs which have changed, please contact the principal, so we can best cater for your needs. An intensive one-on-one literacy program is provided for low progress readers. It focuses on accuracy in reading and spelling and uses such strategies as word attack skills, reinforced reading and sight words.
