At Salisbury State School we believe every student has the ability to learn and should be able to demonstrate progress in their learning.
At Salisbury State School we are committed to meeting the needs of all our students through providing an inclusive education. One where students can access and fully participate in learning, alongside their similar-aged peers, supported by reasonable adjustments and teaching strategies tailored to meet their individual needs. Inclusion is embedded in all aspects of our school’s life, and is supported by culture, policies and everyday practices.
Our commitment to inclusive education means that all our students regardless of, ability, social, cultural, community and family backgrounds will be able to:
