Granville Public School – Support Unit aims to be a community of lifelong learners who can contribute to the ongoing development of our society.
The Support Unit comprises seven classes catering for 72 students; seven special education teachers; seven school learning support officers (SLSOs); an assistant principal (special education); and a non-teaching deputy principal (special education).
Programs for the students are all differentiated and cater for their particular learning needs; while following the NSW Curriculum, as is required by legislation, the school also offers students programs in life skills, such as cooking, gardening, music, drama and visual arts, to name but a few.
In addition to these programs, the Support Unit works very closely with the parents of each student, and this continues throughout the student’s enrolment. This involvement sees the parents being an intricate cog in the development of their child’s individual teaching and learning programs.
The students participate in every aspect of school life, such as assemblies, swimming carnivals, cross-country carnivals, athletic carnivals, inter-school representative sports programs, learning to swim programs and school leadership programs.
The Support Unit operates an integrated program ensuring that students are transitioned into the mainstream section of the school, preparing them for the transition to secondary schooling after they complete Grade 6.
As a school, we continue to support our students and families once they transition on to secondary school, by working closely with the high schools they enroll in.
