JOB DESCRIPTION

Position Information

Anson Street School is a School for Specific Purposes that caters for students across Kindergarten to Year 12 with diverse and specific needs. We accommodate students with physical and intellectual disabilities, mental health concerns and challenging behaviours. We are a positive education, trauma-informed school with an enrolment of 135 students across 21 classes. 30% of our students are Aboriginal.

The philosophy that all students can learn and succeed underpins the practice of all professionals in our context. Highly trained and passionate teaching staff provide all students with access to a high quality, student-centred educational experience. We offer flexible, meaningful learning programs based on both Mainstream and Life Skills curriculum. For secondary students, this includes the opportunity to study electives, undertake work experience in fields of personal interest and access alternative pathways for the achievement of HSC qualification. Specialist services such as speech pathology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and counselling further optimise learning for students who require additional communication, motor, sensory, social and emotional support.

The Campus is managed by Anson Street School and is accessed by various local primary and secondary schools.
