Endeavour Education Support Centre (6152)

School Overview

Endeavour Education Support Centre (EESC) supports students with disabilities who are supported through Schools Resourcing. It shares its site with Endeavour Primary School and both schools work collaboratively under the school name of Endeavour Schools. Endeavour Schools is a truly inclusive school setting where the primary school and education support centre work together for the benefit of all students where every child is special.

Learning occurs within a safe, caring and supportive environment where our staff are fully committed to a continual process of curriculum improvement within the whole school. Endeavour Schools have a strong ethos of being a warm, caring and friendly community where every child is treated as a valued individual and this is reflected in our motto 'Every Child is Special'. Endeavour Schools are a Friendly and Fun (FAF) School, with this philosophy adopted within our values education and daily school life. The development of a consistent approach towards behaviour within Endeavour Schools has enabled a positive tone to flourish. Our action and conduct is guided by our four school values- respect, responsibility, resilience and reconciliation. The pastoral care of our students and families is supplemented through an in-school chaplain and Defence Force Transition Aide.

Endeavour Education Support Centre provides highly individualised documented plans for each of the curriculum learning areas and other priority areas of the Schools. Our programs are prepared by our highly trained and experienced staff in consultation with parents and other stakeholders and are regularly reviewed. Our goal is for students to become independent in managing their daily needs and take ownership of their own learning through the guidance, support and encouragement of our staff. All staff at Endeavour Schools work cooperatively in learning teams to integrate students with disabilities into the whole school as appropriate and to ensure continuity across the curriculum and year levels.

Students are taught in modern classrooms, all with access to the latest in information technology such as iPads, laptops and interactive whiteboards. Endeavour Schools are classified as 'Low Allergen' Schools. Modifications to the building and landscaping plan ensure that wind-borne pollens and dusts are significantly reduced. Outside, multiple play areas provide opportunities for students to interact and develop their movement skills through our amenities including nature play. The Schools are fully air-conditioned providing a pleasant learning environment throughout the year.
