Inclusive Learning

"A strong sense of belonging aids students in their development of emotional resilience and improves their ability to learn."

At St Raphael’s School we believe that all children have a right to access a quality education that meets their learning needs.

All students at St Raphael’s School engage in learning programs which are personalised to ensure they can progress their learning.  Personalised Plans for Learning are developed with families/carers for students with significant learning needs and we have targeted programs in place across the school to support students to overcome or manage particular learning challenges.




Sensory Suite

Our staff are trained in the use of specialised equipment to support students with sensory needs to self-regulate in order that they can access their learning.


MiniLit and MacqLit

Our MiniLit program provides targeted, small group intervention to support children’s development of literacy skills in the early years of learning.

Our MacqLit program is an explicit and systematic reading intervention program for small groups of students in Years 3 – 6.

These programs support the multi-sensory, explicit Literacy learning that occurs in each classroom in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
