Our shared vision is that every student at Mapleton State
School succeeds and receives the support they need to belong to the Mapleton
school community, engages purposefully in learning and experiences academic
success (Every Student Succeeding – State Schools Strategy 2018-2022).
School values inclusive education. Underpinning this policy is the belief that
our students should have maximum access to the curriculum presented in the
classroom. This policy recognises and values the skills of the classroom
teachers in supporting students with special educational needs.

aspects of school life, and is supported by culture, policies and every day
We strive to enable every
