ABORIGINAL EDUCATION

EJEHS caters for the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students through a range of strategies.

At Edward John Eyre High School, we have an Aboriginal Education Team that monitors and tracks the progress of students. The team is made up of the ASETO, AET, Senior Leader Wellbeing.

We have Aboriginal Secondary Education Transition Officers (ASETO) based in Flexible Learning who are able to support students with their learning and wellbeing needs. These staff members are responsible for tracking the progress of students and liaising with both staff and parents to ensure successful learning outcomes.

The Senior Leader Wellbeing provides leadership and support for the AETs to facilitate the ongoing support of students and to increase student outcomes.

To help support this strategy, teachers run the flexible subjects and utilise the flexibilities in SACE to help students achieve success. Students have access to flexible spaces, which offer a number of classes with specialised teachers and SSO support.

Each year the team identifies improvement goals for Aboriginal Education. The improvement goals for the school are in line with the DfE’s Aboriginal Strategy 2019-2029. The strategy is based on five principles which include;

  1. Highest expectations
  2. Accessibility and responsiveness
  3. Culture and identity
  4. Community engagement
  5. Accountability
