Welcome to
Verney Road School

Verney Road School in partnership with parents, carers and the community provides an opportunity for all children to have a meaningful and worthwhile education that maximises their talents and abilities and enhances respect and self-esteem and prepare each individual for a purposeful pathway into adulthood.

Excellence in Supportive Learning

Verney Road School (VRS) is a state government educational facility in the North Eastern Victoria regional city of Shepparton. Students at the school are funded under the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) and have a mild to profound intellectual disability. Many students have multiple diagnoses of disability which may include Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), associated impairments such as sensory and physical impairments and/or challenging behaviours.

School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support

School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) is a framework that helps us to plan and implement practices across the whole school, to improve educational and behaviour outcomes for all students.

The SWPBS framework is founded on a positive approach to whole school well being with targeted approaches for students with higher levels of need.
