Currumbin Community Special School our aim is to meet the individual needs of each student through balanced personalised learning programmes that include academic, social and emotional and vocational outcomes.

The team at Currumbin Community Special School believe all our students can achieve success and design individualised learning programmes according to their phase of schooling.

Students from their prep year through to their 6th year of schooling are part of our primary school. Our students in the lower primary school (prep to year 2) engage in focused learning experiences which explore content drawn from the learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.  

These learning experiences are aligned to the individual needs of each student and are aimed at developing early literacy and numeracy skills, communication and personal and social capabilities.

Our lower primary students will visit the library, attend assembly and participate in our whole school community events.

As our students progress to upper primary (year 4-6), their learning builds on the knowledge and skills learnt in lower primary. Content drawn from the Australian Curriculum learning areas continue to provide learning experiences which align with the individual needs of each student.

The students begin to participate in specialist lessons which include the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden, Creative Arts, water safety and library lessons. Communication and balanced literacy instruction continues to remain a priority as students begin to further explore the school and wider community.

 Students from year 7-10 are part of our junior secondary school. The academic content continues to be drawn from the Australian curriculum and is supported by a combination of communication, balanced literacy and numeracy, personal and social and community access programmes.

Students participate in participate in specialist lessons which include the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden, Creative and Manual Arts, beach access and library programmes. Developing independence becomes a high priority. Students begin to look toward their life after school and the knowledge and skills they will need to become successful members of our community.

In year 10 students will develop a senior education plan (SETplan) and personal future action plan (PFAP) which will guide their education through the senior years of school.
