Gwynne Park Education Support Centre (6075)

School Overview



Gwynne Park Education Support Centre (ESC)is a school which shares the same campus as the Gwynne Park Primary School in the Armadale suburb of Brookdale.

We are an inclusive school, welcoming all students and families, valuing respect for all people, cultures and religions.

Each student at the centre has their own Individual Education Plan (IEP) which is developed in collaboration with parents/caregivers, teachers and education assistants and outside agencies. The IEP specifies each student's current goals and how the goals and outcomes will be taught and are revised twice yearly to inform progress, achievement and areas for future learning. The role of family in the development of each child is recognised and integral in our school.

The Gwynne Park ESC is a purpose built school, which opened in 1991 and has eight classrooms. Specialist facilities and activities include; a multi-sensory interactive room, trampolines, bike track and Flying Fox. Our school accesses Riding for the Disabled Oakford program and the City of Gosnells, 'Leisure World' weekly swimming program.

All staff at the school are trained in a range of 'Special Educational Needs' specific programs such as TEACCH, Discrete Trials, Team Teach and explicit teaching strategies.

Student Individual Education Programs are collaboratively negotiated with key stakeholders, such as, parents and carers, service providers and community members. These are reviewed at the end of each semester.

Our school board plays an important role in contributing to our school governance so that school resources are used efficiently and community expectations and the school's priorities reflect the needs of our students. We are also an active member of the Education Support South Network.
