About

At Croydon Special Developmental School, we have a team of highly skilled and dedicated teachers, education support and allied health staff who work in partnership with families to provide a quality education for students with a moderate-severe intellectual disability. Some students also have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and/or physical disabilities.

Croydon SDS was established on our current site in 1990, and students in our school program are aged 5 to 18 years. We also offer an Early Education Program that caters for children aged 2.8 to 4.8 years, (as of January 1st of that year) with significant delays in two or more developmental areas or a diagnosed disability.

Our school curriculum offers flexibility for teachers to provide structured, individualised, engaging learning experiences for our students.

Our school values are care, share, do your best and be safe. We promote positive student wellbeing and engagement through explicitly teaching personal and social capabilities through the Respectful Relationships curriculum and School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support Framework.

I warmly invite you to contact me if you would like to learn more or have a personal tour of our school. I look forward to talking to you about your child’s individual strengths and needs.
