Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

SJI is fully committed to providing a high quality education for every student who attends its school. SJI recognises that each student is unique and has individual needs. SJI believes that all students should be encouraged to pursue excellence and be supported in achieving their personal best.
If SJI finds that a student will benefit from additional learning support, beyond the standard range of differentiation within the grade level, then they will be referred to the Learning Support Team. However, it is important to note that the scope and availability of the Learning Support services SJI can offer is limited. All students seeking to enrols at SJI, who have received learning support at their previous school, are required to inform the school during the admissions process.

Learning support offered

The Learning Support Team work in close collaboration with parents, classroom teachers, the pastoral team and outside professionals, if necessary, to identify how best to support all students on their learning journey. Typically this involves a member of the Learning Support Team observing the student in the classroom, using a range of screening and assessment tools and conducting cognitive, academic and achievement tests to determine the correct level of support. If appropriate, our Learning Support Team will refer parents to seek further assessments with outside professionals such as an educational psychologist, paediatrician, speech and language therapist, or occupational therapist.
