Inclusion Programs

At Cranleigh we value, promote and actively seek opportunities to provide inclusive activities for all our students. These activities occur across a range of settings:

  •  
  • In-school: Cranleigh students join other classes across the school for activities that reflect their specific skills, interests and needs (these will be identified and detailed in the ILP)
  •  
  • Connect3@Cranleigh: Connect3@Cranleigh began as a pilot pre-school program for 3 year old children whose families wanted them to participate in a small pre-school environment. Connect3 @Cranleigh is an inclusive program for five children run in collaboration with the Early Childhood Unit at Cranleigh. At present our students include two siblings of children who attend Cranleigh and three whose families expressed interest in the program via our education and community networks.
  •  
  • Reverse inclusion: Students from other schools participate with our students in class, group or whole school activities at Cranleigh. 
  •  
  • Inclusion activities in local schools: We currently have programs with Mt Rogers, Fraser, Florey, Macgregor and Weetangera Primary Schools.
  •  
  • Community based programs: Students participate in activities across the wider Canberra Community.
  •  
  • At times, families arrange individual inclusion programs for their child.

Other schools involved with Cranleigh in 2012 are:

  •  
  • Belconnen High School and Radford College bring senior students to Cranleigh each week to join classes and support programs. Radford and Marist College students also support our whole school fun days.
  •  
  • Kingsford Smith, Florey Primary and Weetangera Primary School bring small groups of students each week to join class activities
  •  
  • Fraser Primary and Mt Rogers Primary Schools host groups of Cranleigh students for dance, music and play activities.
  •  
  • Students from Southern Cross Early Childhood School have shared in performance experiences and regularly work with our early childhood classes at Scullin.
