The New South Wales Department of Education aims to support every student to achieve their educational potential. All NSW public school students have a right to an inclusive learning environment and to feel happy and safe at school.
High Potential & Gifted Education (HPGE)
High potential and gifted students may require tailored resourcing and support to cater for their learning needs. High potential students are those whose potential exceeds that of students of the same age in one or more domains: intellectual, creative, social-emotional and physical. Gifted students are those whose potential significantly exceeds that of students of the same age in one or more domains: intellectual, creative, social-emotional, and physical.
Our teaching and learning programs, processes and policies offer tailored support, provide a range of enrichment and extension activities designed to deepen students’ knowledge, understanding and skills. These activities are evaluated each year and may change depending on the needs of the students.

The school’s learning and support team plays a key role in ensuring we meet the specific needs of students with additional learning and support needs, including disability.
- supports teachers in identifying and responding to the additional learning needs of students
- facilitates and coordinates a whole-school approach to improving the learning outcomes of every student
- coordinates planning processes and resourcing for students with additional learning and support needs
- designs and implements the support required to build teacher capacity so that all students access quality learning
- develops collaborative partnerships with the school, parents and carers, as well as other professionals and the wider school community.
