Learning Diversity ~ Intervention Framework

This year staff at St Mary’s will be involved in devising and implementing an INTERVENTION FRAMEWORK as outlined by Catholic Education Melbourne.

The Intervention Framework provides a structure for us to better understand and meet the learning needs of all students. 

It is intended to create an inclusive education where all children are engaged and achieve to the best of their ability.

The Framework is based on the following seven principles:

  • All students can learn
  • Effective school enable a culture of learning
  • Effective teachers are critical to student learning success
  • Learning and teaching are inclusive of all
  • Teaching support matches the needs and talents of the students
  • Effective teaching practices are research-based
  • Inclusive schools actively engage and work in partnership with the wider community

The Intervention Framework builds in structures so that students who require it, receive early instruction and intervention intervention in order to reach their full potential. These interventions are a response to the needs identified by specific assessments or tasks and can be a response to both learning and /or social needs. Interventions can be short term in nature or may be over a longer period of time. It includes ongoing monitoring and evaluating to determine if the interventions are bringing about the desired outcome for the student.


We are excited to begin this process and have committed to work on this throughout 2021 so as to continually improve our practice in order to optimise learning for all our students.
