Special Needs

Canning Vale College has a new Department Endorsed Education Support Program that accepts enrolments for students with disabilities. The program provides access to specialist facilities, which include an independent living/life skills room, games and therapy rooms as well as sensory spaces to meet the individual needs of students. In the Hub, we support students with a range of disabilities and learning difficulties, including those with health, communication, disengagement and re-engagement needs. Students are encouraged to set high expectations for themselves, and staff deliver programs through individualised and differentiated curriculum to meet student need.

Our Hub focusses on teaching curriculum through a life-skills lens providing students with practical opportunities to practice their newly acquired skills. This facilitates student engagement through physical, emotional, and sensory needs being met.

The Department Endorsed Education Support Hub can only enrol students who satisfy the Department of Education’s criteria. If you require further information about our Education Support Hub, please contact the College to arrange a meeting with the Program Coordinator.

Cancellation of Enrolment

The Principal may cancel the enrolment of a student at the College if the Principal is satisfied that:
• the enrolment was obtained by the giving of false or misleading information, or
• if a change of place of residence occurs and written notice has not been provided.

Change of Address

Parents are also required to notify the College in writing via email or student update form (this form can be collected from the Administration office) of any other changes to contact details, including the parent’s Emergency Contact Name and Telephone Number.
