Student background

Student Amy
Age 5
Year 1
School Primary

Amy’s family places great value on her social and academic inclusion. Amy has Down Syndrome. Her rural school receives ongoing and reviewable resourcing schemes (ORRS) funding, which provides teacher aide support for some mornings, and a specialist teacher for half a day a week.

Her family want her to access a quality education alongside her peers in the classroom, to fully participate in class activities, and to have friends at school. This means that planning and teaching needs to focus on Amy’s learning in both the classroom and the playground.
