Gwynne Park Education Support Centre (6075)

School Overview


Gwynne Park Education Support Centre (ESC)is a Level 4 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 seven classrooms. Specialist facilities and activities include; a multi-sensory interactive therapy room, trampolines, bike track and Flying Fox. Our school accesses Riding for the Disabled Oakford program, with the City of Gosnells, 'Leisure World' weekly swimming program, a weekly '3 Leaps Learning' - Protective Behaviours counsellor and speech and language therapist.

Gwynne Park ESC hosts the Early Intervention Autism Spectrum 'Special Program' for Kindergarten and Pre-Primary aged students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Global Developmental Delay.

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.

To advocate the rights of all students attending the School, and to provide support in the future direction of the School, we have our own independent School Board. We are also an active member of the Education Support South Network.
