Rockhampton Special School is divided into 4 cohorts:

  1. Primary
  2. Middle
  3. Senior
  4. Transition

Teachers focus learning in each cohort to student's age and abilities. Data is regularly collected to inform teaching and learning and is reflected upon as a whole staff.

In 2016 a major school focus is improving literacy outcomes for all students. Staff attended 2 days of professional development with Jane Farrall to successfully implement the 'Four Blocks' literacy model. The 'Four Blocks' are guided reading, self-selected reading, writing and working with words. A range of strategies and resources are being used to engage and promote enjoyment through literacy while also fostering each student's ability to become literate.
