Adaptive Education

We are committed to meeting the needs of all students

Our Adaptive Education ensures all students can access the curriculum and fully participate in school life through:

  • Individual Education Plans (IEP's)
  • parental involvement
  • providing additional teacher support in class
  • specialist literacy and numeracy programs
  • adjustments to curriculum delivery and assessment for students

Support for students with learning needs is offered in an inclusive and supportive way by specialist subject teachers within the classroom in a way that their needs are met.

Literacy and numeracy support

Literacy and numeracy skills are critical parts of a child’s development.

Xavier College places great emphasis on the development of literacy and numeracy skills. Data is used to inform teaching practice to target students at their specific skill level, in order to explicitly teach skills and strategies required to understand and apply knowledge and content.

Xavier students also participate in the NAPLAN (National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy) and PAT (Progressive Achievement Tests) testing to assist in this regard.

Gifted & talented

At Xavier College, students are provided with opportunities to further enhance their development in learning experiences which can help them to develop and flourish.

Within the classroom, teachers use differentiated teaching and assessment to enable gifted and talented students to both extend and develop their strengths.

Students who demonstrate high intellectual potential are encouraged to further develop their specific talents through stimulating programs like Tournament of Minds, Cosmic Camp and a number of State and National subject specific competitions and extra-curricular opportunities.
