Partnering with parents

Working with parents and families of students with disability is essential in strengthening educational outcomes. School leaders respect that parents and families have different needs and engagement with families based on their individual circumstances.

Schools ensure all families feel welcome, and their children have a sense belonging within the school community.

The Disability Standards for Education 2005 require education staff to consult External Link with a student with disability - or their parent or other associate - before making reasonable adjustments.

The Education for children with disability guide for parents aims to give parents a broad understanding of the support available in Queensland state schools for children and young people with disability.

Parents and carers feedback about their child's education is important and we are committed to ensuring all complaints are dealt fairly and equitably.
