Enrolments in support classes and schools for specific purposes by category (2011-2018)

Enrolments of students in support classes and in schools for specific purposes by category.

Data Notes:

  • Schools for specific purposes (SSPs) are for students with significant to extensive support needs. Students in SSPs are reported according to type of class rather than by their year of schooling. Many students have comorbid disability so the focus is on placing students with similar needs in the same class.

  • The majority of students with moderate to extensive support needs are enrolled in support classes in primary, secondary and central schools. Students enrolled in support classes are reported according to the type of class rather than by their year of schooling.

  • Students in SSPs, except those in juvenile justice schools, are reported by type of class.
