Disability: Students with Disability

ACT public schools are committed to meeting the needs of students with disability. In partnership with the student, parents, carers and other professionals, we make reasonable adjustments for students with disability at the time of their enrolment and during the course of their education, supporting them to access and participate in the school curriculum, programs and activities on the same basis as their peers.

All students in the ACT can attend their local public school. If you need support with enrolment at Duffy Primary School, please contact the front office, 6142 2510, for assistance. The Education Directorate also works closely with schools to provide appropriate supports and adjustments.

Adjustments may be made in the areas of curriculum, environment and/or teaching methods, and will vary according to the needs of individual students.

We consult with parents and carers to understand their child's education needs and the adjustments required to support the student. Reasonable adjustments maybe necessary to enable a student with disability to take part in education on the same basis as other students and assist students and families to feel safe and supported in the education environment.
