Hillside is an inclusive school where all children are included as part of the school community. We recognise that each child is unique and that all children are entitled to a broad, balanced and suitably differentiated curriculum. We strive to create an inclusive model of provision, embracing cultural diversity and celebrating differences. Our teaching team will work closely with parents to provide a variety of support structures for diverse learners to fully access and benefit from our open-planned, English-speaking inquiry-based programme.

These support structures may include, but are not limited to:

  • Classroom Strategies
  • Intervention Cycles
  • Individual Educational Plan (IEP)
  • Onsite Pre-school Rehabilitation Services (OPRS – government subvented)
  • Speech and Language Therapy (parent-funded, on-site with SPOT)**
  • Occupational Therapy (parent-funded, off-site)**

**Please note while Hillside has a school-based Student Support Co-ordinator, but we do not have a Learning Support Unit with specialist teachers on-site. Therapy services are out-sourced and parent-funded.
