Inclusive Education Team

As a school that values and promotes inclusive education, there is a strong commitment to the practice of individualised learning for all students and, in particular, students with additional needs. Students with identified learning needs are supported with a team of expert classroom support staff who work alongside the students and teachers in the classroom to ensure that learning is inclusive and accessible for all learners.

Teachers are skilled in adjusting and differentiating their teaching and assessment tasks based on the personalised learning goals of students.

The school’s Aboriginal Education Team works with teachers and students to ensure that everyone is working towards the vision of supporting growth for every child, because every Aboriginal child at Adelaide Botanic High School deserves to be a proud and confident learner striving to achieve their highest potential.

Learning activities in Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week are designed as a whole school with the understanding that Adelaide Botanic High School stands tall and proud on Kaurna land where education and learning have been undertaken for thousands of years prior to now.

The school’s work is aligned to the Department for Education’s Aboriginal Education Strategy 2019 to 2029.
