Rockingham Beach Education Support Centre is co-located on a shared campus with Rockingham Beach Primary School. Sharing our campus fosters integration and promotes inclusiveness. Our students benefit from shared facilities such as playground areas providing the opportunity for all students to play and interact with their peers.
Situated in the City of Rockingham, approximately 47 kilometres south of Perth, Rockingham Beach Education Support Centre provides highly individualised programs for Kindergarten to Year 6 students with diagnosed disabilities. These programs are created by our experienced education support teachers in consultation with parents, therapists, and other relevant agencies. Our highly qualified specialist teachers and education assistants provide a high level of support and intervention to ensure to meet the diverse needs of all students.
Our vision of Building Brilliant Futures with our Families, together with our priorities, hinge on the school values of Experience the Extraordinary, Connect and Communicate, Embrace Individuality and Embed Skills for Life. Our learning pillars embrace evidence-based interventions, academic skills, communication, and personal and social Learning. These areas highlight essential explicit instruction for our students with special needs, to support them to thrive in life.
The curriculum programs are supported with regular excursions and a school camp organised for students on a yearly basis. Students are invited to participate in specialist swimming lessons and are provided the opportunity to access specialist horse riding lessons through Riding for the Disabled. Special events include inter Education Support Swimming and Beach carnivals, and family picnics.
Our priorities are to deliver every student the opportunity to participate optimally in society by providing them with knowledge, understanding and tools to support their management of self, and ability to socially interact with others.
We are a Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) school and select evidence-based practices built upon a consistent approach to positive behaviour expectations. Through our four overarching behaviour expectations for students and staff; Respect, Resilience, Learning and Safety we can respond to individual student needs through a schoolwide system of positive behavioural supports.
Excellent relationships exist between parents and staff with the School Board playing an important role in ensuring the school meets the expectations of the community. At Rockingham Beach we pride ourselves on a strong sense of community and believe children learn best when we work together to develop robust, productive home-school partnerships.
