About our school

School hours

Naremburn School operates from 9am to 2:20pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. All students should be ready to learn from 9:20am.

If students are late they need to sign in at the office. On Wednesdays, students will be dismissed at 12pm to allow for case conference meetings, integration monitoring, work experience assessing and other related student/teacher activities.

All bags must be turned into the office upon arrival each day. Bag searches are carried out randomly.

Naremburn School provides individualised education aimed at addressing each student's academic, vocational and behavioural needs.

Students who have exhausted the support offered in their mainstream school may be referred to Naremburn School through the referral process. The program caters for students in Years 7 to 12 inclusive.

Students are provided with intensive behavioural support, vocational preparation and an educational program which meets Board of Studies outcomes in a structured and supportive classroom environment.

The development of the educational program is via a range of strategies including teacher expertise, textbooks, Board of Studies documents, hands-on activities, excursions, distance education (for Years 9 to 12), and purchased resources.

The delivery of the educational curriculum addresses the individual needs and strengths of each student. Students are able to access their Record of School Achievement (RoSA) which is individualised, depending on their needs and goals. Senior students are now able to access their Higher School Certificate (HSC) from 2016.

At the time of referral, a returning school is to be negotiated and nominated thus ensuring a close communication link during the student's enrolment at Naremburn School.

At the exit stage of the program a student may return to this nominated school, another school, TAFE (technical and further education), employment, a work related program or an apprenticeship/traineeship depending on which particular program will best meet the needs of the student.

This decision is always made by all interested parties and the students are supported during their integration process by the staff at Naremburn School.
