West Coast Secondary Education Support Centre
West Coast Secondary Education Support Centre (West Coast SESC) is a government Independent Public School (IPS) catering for students with special educational needs in Years 7-12, located 18 kms from Perth in the suburb of Warwick. Our students come from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds - a feature which serves to enrich our learning environment. Working with our community, we achieve our school vision of ‘Caring, Achieving, Together’.
At West Coast SESC students are encouraged to develop skills relevant to their individual needs and to take pride in their achievements. All students are supported to embrace opportunities to fulfil their educational and personal goals in order to achieve their highest potential and be well prepared to live and work in a rapidly changing and diverse society. We have high expectations of our students and work in partnership with parents and other stakeholders to provide authentic and relevant curriculum. Curriculums include, but are not limited to; English, Maths, Health and Physical Education, Zones of Regulation, Workplace Learning, ASDAN, Bushrangers, Protective Behaviours Education and You Can Do It!
Each student has an individualised education plan or individual transition plan outlining their priority objectives while at school, at home and in the community. These plans also form the basis for reporting to parents on student progress. Staff use data collection plans to address student needs across learning areas and monitor progress.
West Coast SESC work conscientiously to prepare students for work and leisure; and have a high rate of success with students entering the workforce, recreation programs and/or setting up mini enterprises post school.
We actively promote the acceptance and tolerance of individual differences in self and others, and encourage open and positive communication with all. Staff are encouraged to attend relevant, ongoing professional development sessions and to take an active part in decision making at the Centre.
Public Transport Authority (PTA) provide transport to West Coast SESC if your child meets the eligibility criteria of School Bus Service.
