All of our students are part of a caring and supportive community which encourages them to realise their full potential. Students can face a broad range of challenges, from social to physical or emotional difficulties that may impact on their learning.
Our learning support team works collaboratively with teachers, families and external service providers to ensure each individual child’s needs are catered for. At Kearnan, our aim is to provide the resources and environment needed to support the education and development of the whole person.

All of our classroom teachers understand the importance of a fully differentiated curriculum and Education Assistants are utilised in classrooms to provide general learning support. Small group sessions or concentrated learning support is available in both the junior and secondary schools with MiniLit and Reading Tutor specific intervention programs offered.
ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) is a not-for-profit, curriculum development organisation and internationally recognised awarding body based in the United Kingdom.
