There are a number of students at Lakes Entrance Primary School who are eligible for additional resourcing through the Program for Students with Disabilities.  These can be funded for physical, social/emotional, Autism, language or intellectual support.  The process is extensive and the thresholds for funding are high.  Many students with high needs receive no additional funding.


One part of Education Support Staff’s role is to provide intensive support to funded students under the direction of the classroom teacher.  This may take the form of guidance, one to one instruction, supervision or touching base in the playground.
