LEAP

Welcome to the new look Learning Engagement Acceleration Program Centre! This has been an exciting time as we have set up our new facility. Our new LEAP centre is a cluster of resources - specialist teachers, support teacher aides and external professionals based here at Emu Park State School. We support all students to ensure learning. Our LEAP centre programs are dedicated to supporting the educational needs of all students at one time or another throughout their schooling. These areas of support include; curriculum programs, extension programs, fine &
gross motor programs, speech & language programs, behaviour programs, and programs to ensure engagement at Emu Park State School. We strive to ensure all students are learning every day in every classroom.
 
LEAP SUPPORT STRUCTURE
Our school provides support in a variety of ways. We mainly support students in the classroom alongside their peers, whilst other programs might give students separate, specialised lessons when needed. Our school Staff plan collaboratively for every student to participate and learn. Our school Curriculum Framework guides the teaching and learning of all students. It sets high expectations for the learning achieved by all students. All Students participate in the same curriculum activities and learning programs as other students in the class with the support of suitable adjustments. An adjustment is any change made to help a student participate at school, learn, and be comfortable and safe. This involves explicit teaching and scaffolded learning, teaching both the concepts on which the task is based and the language demands of the task, enabling all students to participate in the curriculum.
There is a wide range of adjustments that are possible for students including adjustments to curriculum, teaching strategies and equipment. Your classroom teacher will contact you if they feel any of these programs would benefit your child and their learning.
 
LEAP POINTS & LAPEL PINS
Certain LEAP programs will attract LEAP points as students strive to achieve their LEAP lapel pins as detailed below. Students are awarded points on the completion of certain courses and these points are tallied throughout their schooling here with us. Our four levels of awards are reflective of our school colours and are named after gem stones. Each gem has certain properties that Students are progressing towards.
 
Citrine success, self esteem, open mindedness and calm conduct
 
Aquamarine intellectual reasoning, communication and persistency
 
Emerald unity and harmony, clear vision, memory and clear assurance
 
Sapphire loyalty, truth and sincerity
 
Our LEAP points are continually tallied and certificates and lapel pins are presented at the end of each semester at assembly. Letters are sent home to Parents when their child is due to receive an award.
