Murray Unit (Disability Unit)

The Murray Unit has four classes, catering for 32 students from Reception to Year 7 with a range of intellectual disabilities.

We have a Unit Co-ordinator, 1 teacher and 1 SSO for each class, extra support staff are used as needed. Our facilities include a large secure play area as well as sensory retreats for each classroom.

All students are enrolled through a Special Options process through the Department for Education; eligibility is determined by a panel process. Enrolment cannot be done through school.

Co-located on the Blakeview Primary site means we build and maintain strong links with our mainstream peers. This is done by joining in with Assemblies, Sports Days, Book Week and working with Buddy Classes for reading and other activities to name a few.

Students’ learning is differentiated and is linked to the individual One Child One Plan and SMARTAR Goals which are written in collaboration with parents/caregivers. Our curriculum focuses on Social Skills and Life Skills which include Literacy and Numeracy.

Governing Council

The Governing Council is accountable to the school community and to the Minister for Education for representing the views of the community about the priorities and educational needs of its students and children, and for supporting the principal in their role.

The Governing Council of a school is a representative group of at least five members.

The Governing Council meets twice a term to represent the whole school community in understanding local educational needs, setting broad directions for the site, and monitoring and reporting on achievements.

This is an important partnership between Blakeview Primary School’s local community as represented on its Governing Council, and the school Principal who work together to develop the future directions for the school.

Membership includes:

  • Parent Members who form the majority of the Governing Council membership.
  • Community Members may be appointed (up to three). These may be from business, industry or community groups; they may be people with particular skills relevant to the current goals of the council, or they may be members of local or state government.
  • The Principal is automatically a member.
  • Two staff members are elected to council by a meeting of all site staff.

If you wish to read a copy of the Governing Council Constitution, one is available below and at the front office.

If you wish to raise an issue at Governing Council please put it in writing and give the letter to a Council member or to the Front Office.

Well-being

Well-being is integral to the learning process; well-being is about feeling well, functioning well, achieving one’s best and enjoying learning. At Blakeview Primary School students’ well-being is a high priority. We have embarked on a journey where our whole school community can connect with us if they have a concern connected to a student’s well-being.

The forms below are where you can click and feed through well-being concerns to our well-being team about your child or yourself if you’re a current student of Blakeview Primary School. By scrolling down to the ‘Parent’ or ‘Student’ section and clicking on the form and recording your well-being or mental health concerns for your child or yourself, then press submit.

This gives our well-being team valuable information, so we can support Blakeview Primary School students holistically while they are at school. We believe ‘together is better’ and being able to connect with our whole school community will enable us to be positively proactive in supporting students rather than being re-active.

The type of concerns to report on are bullying, anxiety, sleep issues, family changes, death in the family and / or changes in circumstances that affect your child.
