Specialised Programs

At Ballarat North Primary School, we endeavour to create a safe and nurturing learning environment in which all staff members are committed to developing supportive relationships with our students. We have a range of educational options to assist students, with special learning needs, who have been identified as requiring additional support. Our ongoing monitoring and assessment practices allow us to quickly identify the students who need extra support to maximise their potential. Students may receive additional assistance individually or in small groups with other students who have similar needs.


Small groups of students are withdrawn from class each day for focussed, explicit literacy learning on reading, phonemic awareness and phonics.

Disability Inclusion

We develop supportive, Individualised Educational Learning Plans for students with learning and social challenges or disabilities in which parent participation and input is vital. Inclusion is an important consideration for all our students, where time in the classroom, with peers, is maximised and Educational Support staff assist students with particular learning needs. We also offer a comprehensive Social & Emotional Learning program whereby students learn vital socialisation skills.

We have strong connections with our local preschools and secondary schools. These connections enable us to provide all students, especially those with special needs, with quality transition programs.

Ballarat North Primary School acknowledges the Wadawurrung People as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school sits.
We pay our respects to all Aboriginal people, their culture and their elders: past, present, future and emerging.
