Catering for Differences


At Santa Clara School we acknowledge our culturally and linguistic diverse community and recognise and understand that some of our students require their  teaching and learning to be supported through the use of the EAL/D Progress Maps.

The English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) Progress Maps are a Western Australian planning, monitoring and assessment tool that assists students in developing Standard Australian English (SAE).  Students that are following a modified curriculum through an EAL/D learning plan will have personalised learning goals set mapped according to the EAL/D Progress Maps.


At Santa Clara School we offer Literacy Support for our students in Year 1 – Year 2 through MiniLit. Our MiniLit explicit small group support program runs four days a week covering key elements of reading instruction such as, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension and oral language.

In the uppers years we offer MacqLit reading support for students from Year 3 and above. MacLit offers explicit small group reading and spelling support four days a week.
