Diamond Valley SDS is a purpose designed government school offering a safe and effective learning environment for the very specific needs of school age students with significant intellectual, multiple or behavioural disabilities. Situated on the outskirts of Greensborough it utilises a Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) funded transport system to draw students from a wide zone of surrounding areas.
We are committed to providing the highest quality education for our students. Based on the right of each individual to develop to their maximum potential within a caring and supportive environment, our school policy encourages parents, staff and carers to play an active role in planning educational and developmental programs.
Student Support Groups established for each student emphasise the co-responsibility of home and school in sharing the learning process. These meet regularly to review students’ individual programs. The partnership of home and school is exemplified by the high level of day-to-day contact by way of telephone or communication book, and the positive way in which parents are encouraged to participate in their children’s education.
The school community takes pride in the innovative ways we continually adapt and improve our program and resources to reflect changing student needs and educational practice. By providing opportunities for our school community to train, plan and make decision together, strength is given to our shared goals.
