All students who are considered for enrolment must be unable to maintain mainstream schooling based on challenging behaviours and or educational disadvantage due to life circumstance.
Students are assessed based on individual need inclusive of diagnosis e.g. mental health, hearing, autism etc. The majority of students enrolled have mental health diagnosis as assessed and reported to the College by the student’s Psychiatrist or Psychologist. Other reports inclusive of school counsellor reports and GP reports are also maintained as part of the needs assessment process.
Students presenting with behaviours indicative of a medical / psychological disorder but not yet assessed will be considered for enrolment and supported through the assessment process whilst enrolled.
Students with life circumstances that culminate in adverse behaviours or who have support needs at a level that can be provided through Margaret Jurd College are considered for enrolment to support the child’s continuation of educational involvement.
