About our school

Asquith Public School is committed to providing a caring, supportive learning environment in which students will be guided to reach their potential as individuals, capable of accepting and exercising responsibility in the wider context of our society. This positive environment forms the basis of the school culture and has been identified as one of the major factors relating to the success and happiness of students at Asquith Public School. The school's motto, 'Learning Together', represents the partnership the school enjoys with its community in achieving excellence in educational outcomes for students. The dedication and support of staff are highly valued aspects of our school. The extensive support and involvement of our community is evident throughout the school. This partnership enhances the culture of the school and allows all members of the school community to grow and develop. The construction of new school facilities, including new classrooms and library and the airconditioning of additional classrooms, has added to the positive learning environment that exists for the students at Asquith Public School.

Support Class Unit Information

Asquith Public School has three support classes for students with disabilities. These classes include a mild intellectual disability class and two multi-categorical classes. Our Support Class Unit (SCU) operates under the policies and procedures of the NSW Department of Education.

You cannot enrol your child directly into a support class but your local school can help you with this process. The first step is to speak to your child’s local school.

Applications for placement are through the Access Request process. An Access Request is arranged by the school learning and support team at the local public school.

A student is offered enrolment in a support class in mainstream school through a placement panel process. A student's eligibility is determined through the Department's disability criteria as well as the availability of a place in an appropriate support class.

School learning and support teams review the placement of each student annually. Reviews consider all aspects of a student's personalised learning and support, including whether or not the current placement is best meeting their learning and support needs.

Parents or carers seeking enrolment in a support class should contact the principal of their child's school. Parents or carers whose child is not yet enrolled in school should contact their local school or local educational services team on 131 536.

Please note that tours of our support classes will be arranged for families of students who have received a formal offer via the placement panel.
