Inclusive Education


Brisbane Catholic Education schools are communities where all students are educated to live the gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative, confident, active and informed learners.

Clairvaux MacKillop College is committed to inclusive education principles and practices to ensure that all students can access, participate and succeed in education.

Inclusive education is:

  • A human right
  • Supported by research and legislation
  • Best for everyone

Inclusion is a philosophy, a culture, and a way of being based on human rights. All Clairvaux MacKillop College students are members of one inclusive community.

At Clairvaux MacKillop College, we collaborate and consult with students, parents and carers through case management, personalised planning and pastoral care processes that respond to individual student needs.

Levels of Teaching Response is a Brisbane Catholic Education framework that enables school teams to collaboratively make decisions that ensure all students receive their learning entitlement according to the approved curriculum (ACARA curriculum, BCE RE curriculum, QCAA Senior Syllabus). The framework responds to all students across all aspects of learning. All students engage within effective first teaching, while also receiving the targeted, strategic, or intensive support that they may need at different times or in different learning areas.
