Our school

Southport Special School is an Independent Public School (IPS). Like all state schools, we are an integral part of the state schooling system and operate in line with the same legislation and whole of government policy. As an IPS, we have greater autonomy and increased empowerment in decision making ultimately removing barriers to maximise student learning outcomes.

At Southport Special School, we value high levels of collaboration and shared

decision making with our families.  We aim to support every student to be their very best. We do this through the use of evidence based research to inform teaching and learning, rigorous use of student learning data to inform next steps for learning and a strong commitment to supporting the capability development of staff at all levels of their career.

Our vision is to provide an individualised curriculum, with quality programs that develop in our students the knowledge, skills, attitudes and readiness to engage as valued members of the broader community. For more information about our vision and values, view our school vision (PDF, 90 KB)

Middle Years - Years 4, 5 and 6

Junior Secondary - Years 7, 8 and 9
