At Modbury Special School we recognise that each child has individual needs and abilities. In every classroom the learning environment and curriculum are personalised to suit the individual child. Incorporating explicit sensory processing and communication strategies to support children to effectively engage in the curriculum is a major focus.


The curriculum is planned in accordance with the Disability Standards of Education (2005). The Australian Curriculum (AC) is used to meet the learning needs of all children. Appropriate educational, instructional and environmental adjustments are made to support each child. We report against personalised learning goals developed during each child's Negotiated Education Plan meeting.


Each Learning Unit is named for a plant that is native to Australia. Each unit looks and operates quite distinctly from the others as the staff plan to meet the needs of the children. The Grevillea Learning Unit is made up of three smaller groups that are named after native birds.
