At Berengarra School, we strive to uphold the principles of inclusive education, meaning that all members of our community are valued and supported to fully belong, participate, learn, develop and succeed within an inclusive and nurturing school culture.

Students who attend Berengarra School present with widely diverse needs. Berengarra School celebrates diversity and is committed to supporting the inclusion and success of all students. This requires an acknowledgement that some students have intersecting identities or additional needs that need to be taken into consideration.  These identities may relate to:

  • having a disability or additional learning needs

  • being a LGBTIA+ young person
  • being an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person
  • race
  • cultural identity
  • speaking a language other than English
