Concord School

Is my child eligible to attend Concord School?

In order for students to be enrolled at Concord School, eligibility for the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) needs to be established in the category of Intellectual Disability.

If the student is already on the PSD in the category of Intellectual Disability, and the student attends another Government school, the student can be simply transferred across to our school.

For further information regarding eligibility, please contact the relevant Team Leader.

Do I need to live in the school zone to attend Concord School?

No, you do not need to live in the school zone to attend Concord School however you can only access the free DET bus transport to and from school if you live inside the zone.

Many families choose to send their child to Concord School from out of the zone and either drive them or train them to travel on public transport.

What will my child be taught?

The students are taught the mainstream AusVELS and VCAL (Year 11-12) curriculum however the educational pathway of each student is specifically tailored, through the use of Individual Learning Plans, to meet their targeted learning needs.

What happens when my child leaves school?

All students pursue either further education (Day Programs or TAFE) or employment (supported or independent) when they leave Concord School.

From as early as Year 9, our Careers and Transitions Coordinator coordinates the career education of our students and works with families to determine the future pathway for each student.

Please see the Careers and Transitioning section of the website for further information.

Is there a school uniform?

Yes, there is both a Primary (Prep-Year 6) and Secondary (Year 7-12) school uniform and the wearing of the uniform is strictly enforced.

There is a strong belief that the wearing of school uniform encourages a school identity, promotes a sense of pride in the school and promotes an ethos of equality.

Please see the School Uniform section of the website for further information.
