Children and young people who need extra help can be referred to the Student Support Services team by their teacher. Student Support Services include social workers, behaviour support coaches, psychologists, special educators, speech pathologists and provide support to children and teachers in state schools and preschools.
If your child’s teacher feels that your child is having difficulties, they may engage with the Student Support Services team regarding these difficulties. Your teacher will discuss this with you and obtain your consent before making a formal request for support for your child. For more information feel free to speak to your class teacher, email the school or click here to visit the Department for Education webpage.
