Student services and support programs

All students at Riverview State School have access to a range of support programs. These include but are not limited to:

Special education program (SEP)

Any student identified as having a verified disability or likely to be verified as having a disability will be supported by the SEP or Blue room as it is called at Riverview State School. This includes class based academic support, access to alternative eating and play spaces, social support in the playground and a range of self-esteem, social emotional and life skills programs.

Learning support

Students who are identified as have academic difficulties are identified and support programs are developed to be implemented in the classroom by the class teacher or in one on one or small group situations by the class teacher aide or learning support teacher.

Intervention programs

Students who are identified as being behind their age expectations but are still making progress academically are supported through the intervention program. This involves targeted small group sessions developed in collaboration with the class teacher to develop identified skills and understanding and implemented through half hour sessions with the Intervention Teacher.  These programs are established at the beginning of each term and run for between eight and ten weeks.

School based psychologist

A practicing psychologist is available to support students with a range of social, emotional or behavioural needs. Support is provided at school and students are referred in consultation with parents and the family general practitioner.

Self esteem programs

A range of programs are available for children to access during play breaks to assist in developing friendships and social skills. These include the Rock and Water Program, Super club run by our school chaplain, dance groups and Kids club (games room).

Behaviour support

Students requiring support for behaviour are identified and individual programs developed to meet their needs. These programs are developed collaboratively by the class teacher, Behaviour advisory teacher, Guidance officer and school administration.

A range of other programs are imbedded into the Riverview State School pedagogical framework to ensure all students are seen as individual and that their individual needs are met academically, socially and emotionally.

The school curriculum is designed to provide specific support for Language learners and English as a second language students as well as actively teaching behaviour expectations, promoting and celebrating cultural diversity and developing student wellbeing.
