Education Support - Learning Enrichment & Active Partnerships (LEAP) Program
The LEAP program was developed to promote relevant learning pathways for students with various special education needs and intellectual disability. LEAP learning occurs with an integrated 'hands on' approach with students engaged in practical activities to promote the skills required to achieve personal independence and success beyond school.
Students are provided with modified curriculum reflecting their individual needs and are supported by experienced Education Assistants who promote success. Parent involvement is actively sought assisting each student’s development and implementation of authentic and meaningful Individual Education Plans (IEPs) tailored to each individual’s needs. All LEAP students are part of the CVC community and positive interactions are encouraged and supported with their mainstream peers. LEAP teachers work in partnership with whole school staff to ensure a seamless flow for students as they progress from Year 7 to the community beyond in identifying and delivering tailored programs and activities with a focus on personal and interpersonal skills, functional literacy and numeracy, and life skills among others.
