Barrett Adolescent School caters for students who need assistance to re-engage with education because of their complex mental health needs. The school offers support for students from Metropolitan Region across Years 7 - 12.
Barrett re-engages students through relational education with a focus on mental health, social, emotional and life skills, trauma-informed education and the development of classroom readiness. We practice inclusive education, in transitioning students to the most appropriate education facilities to suit their needs.
The complex health and social needs of the students, and the implications for curriculum development, are at the forefront of our planning process while re-engagement occurs. This includes partnership with and respect for stakeholders (parents and carers, clinical care providers, base schools). To this end each student has a Barrett Support Plan and Individual Learning Plan, developed in conjunction with all stakeholders, differentiated and adjusted.
