At St Brigid's Catholic School we pride ourselves on including all students within our school.  We feel that every child has an opportunity to develop a personal relationship with Jesus as well as a love of self, love of others and love of learning. Importantly we also believe in a just world where your abilities or disabilities and background are respected and celebrated.

Another aspect of the St Brigid's Catholic School vision is having confidence in embracing a world of change. Society is changing dramatically in many ways. With the marvels of modern science more children and adults are living with a disability, either congenitally or acquired. Disabilities can range from physical, social, emotional, intellectual or psychological. As in society, this is reflective within the St Brigid's School community.
 
As a school community we hope that our students leave St Brigid's Catholic School with an acceptance of difference and the ability to interact with all people with respect.

Our Inclusive Education Coordinator (Colleen Stevens) works alongside a team of dedicated Education Support Officers (ESO's), teachers and school leaders who constantly strive to ensure that all students in our school community are accessing the curriculum and reaching their potential. As a school we offer a variety of intervention programs to assist with the varied learning needs of our students. These programs include Reading Recovery, Enrichment Program, Leaping Lizards, Quick Smart, Rainbow Reading, Oral Language Group and small teacher led groups with key teachers for Literacy and Numeracy.
