Our journey so far
Every student with disability succeeding plan 2021–2025 builds on the work we have undertaken to implement the Queensland Disability Review and our response plan, our first
Every student with disability succeeding plan.
Some of our main achievements include the release of the
inclusive education policy, initiatives to support parents of students with disability and to improve student outcomes. In June 2022, the department completed the final recommendation with the release of the
students with disability – reasonable adjustments resourcing model.

Our next phase of reform
The department remains committed to ensuring students with disability are able to access an inclusive and equitable education with the same opportunities as other students.
We will continue our next phase of reform by implementing our
Every student with disability succeeding 2021–2025 plan. The plan aims to support the success and wellbeing of every student with disability through each stage of learning in an inclusive education system.
It focuses on student engagement and wellbeing, human rights and supporting students to successfully transition through the stages of schooling when they start Prep, move to secondary education and life after school.
We will continue to monitor student outcomes, including academic achievement, school disciplinary absences, access to full-time educational programs and Queensland Certificate of Education attainment. As part of our current plan, we are also monitoring student wellbeing, student and parent satisfaction and retention in Years 10 to 12.
To achieve better outcomes, our new plan commits to actions under 3 focus areas:
Setting expectations to foster an inclusive culture which respects diversity and acknowledges that with the right support, every student with disability can succeed.
Building capability to support schools and build the confidence and capability of staff to provide the right support as children and young people transition through each stage of learning.
Collaborating with students, parents and the community to ensure students with disability and their families are heard and are engaged as equal partners in improving outcomes.
