Inclusive Education

Under the Disability Act (1992), the Disability Standards for Education (2005) and the Inclusive Education Policy (2018), all students have a right to an inclusive education. 
Inclusive education means that students can access and fully participate in learning, along-side their similar age peers, supported by reasonable adjustments and teaching strategies tailored to meet their individual needs.  Inclusion is embedded in all aspects of school life, and is supported by culture, policies and every day practices.
Importantly, the Queensland Policy is based upon the leading and most authoritative international instrument on inclusive education (General Comment No. 4: The Right to Inclusive Education) which clarifies the obligations of State parties (including Australia) in relation to inclusive education under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and particularly Article 24 (Education) of that Convention.
At Pullenvale State School, we are committed to upholding the principles outlined in the Inclusive Education Policy statement.
