  • The Early Childhood component of the Primary School is committed to the development of the whole child (physical, academic, emotional and social). We provide a variety of programs which focus on the individual needs of each young learner.

Learning Support at BBC

At the Bunbury Baptist College Primary School, student learning needs are given the highest priority. All students are fully included in the life of the school community, regardless of any differences they may have. Staff recognise the importance of inclusion and work quickly to build relationship with the student and their parents. The Learning Support Coordinator works closely with every teacher to ensure that every student can access the classroom learning experiences and develop the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential. Education Assistants assist students in the classrooms and support them to meet learning goals. The Learning Support Teacher works with groups of students to support their Literacy and Numeracy learning. Some of the specific strategies we employ are:

  • Individual Education and Behaviour plans
  • Regular team meetings to review progress
  • Training for staff in specific learning differences
  • Sensory considerations, such as uncluttered classrooms, careful use of colour, noise management, movement breaks, sensory tools
  • Chaplaincy service and sensory spaces for students who become anxious or emotional
  • Small group and individual intervention programs based on latest research
  • Accessing government funding for students with eligible disabilities
  • Access to a consultant School Psychologist
  • Active support for parents of students who have learning differences
  • Regular screening and assessment of students who demonstrate learning difficulties, with a focus on early intervention
  • Extension program for students who are excelling in their learning
  • Bunbury Baptist College is a member of Gifted WA and the Australian Association for the Education of the Gifted and Talented
