Westminster ESC School CurriculumSchool Curriculum.


At Westminster Education Support Centre we aim to provide all of our students with individual learning programs which are negotiated with parents and carers. These programs are formalised in an Individual Education Plan, which allows student goals to be set and monitored for individual progress.

Westminster Education Support Centre share a campus with both Westminster Junior Primary School and Westminster Primary School. This provides our students with an opportunity for integration and inclusion, through participation in whole school activities and the chance to take part in mainstream classes.
