Types of provision
ESF offers three broad support options, based on the ESF Levels of Adjustment (LOA) Framework.
Mainstream with support
Many students who require less extensive, class-based teaching and learning adjustments are catered for within mainstream classes in all kindergartens and schools.
Students who require more extensive, daily teaching and learning adjustments are catered for within learning support (LS) within ESF primary schools and secondary schools.
Entry to this level of provision is through a central process called the Admissions and Review Process, not through the local school.
Jockey Club Sarah Roe School
Students who require the most extensive teaching and learning adjustments are catered for within the Jockey Club Sarah Roe School (JCSRS).
Applications to Learning Support and JCSRS
Applications for LS and JCSRS are managed through ESF Centre, with an Admissions and Review Process (ARP) to assess students and make placement recommendations in line with the ESF Levels of Adjustment (LOA) Framework.
Parents are required to complete an application form online through the ESF Online Application System. For further details and the application form, click here.
Some students may apply through both the mainstream admissions process and the LS/JCSRS admissions process. If parents and/or school are unsure whether a child will require an LS or JCSRS place, it is recommended that they also submit a mainstream application.
If you wish to make an LS or JCSRS application, please contact us with information regarding your child’s age and the provision that you would like to apply for.
