Welcome to Philip Pocock’s Academic Resource Website, a valuable resource to our Students, Parents and Teachers! Our website has been designed to provide a wealth of information pertaining to special education and achieving success in high school.
Philip Pocock Secondary School is a community that is rich in Special Education Resources! Our Academic Resource Department is comprised of 3 specialty programs: The Planning for Independence Program, The Needs Moderate Communication Program and our Regional ASD Diploma Support Program. Our Academic Resource Team offers support services to our mainstreamed identified students who have been deemed exceptional through the Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) or those students who are working on an Individual Education Plan (IEP).
At Philip Pocock Secondary School, all students with an Individual Education Plan (IEP) are assigned a Resource Teacher who monitors and supports the students’ needs. The Resource Teacher collaborates in the implementation, teaching and review of programs for students with special education needs. Resource teachers meet with their students to outline the support resources available and to support the students in understanding their varied learning styles and needs. It is encouraged that students also enroll in our Learning strategies courses to support use of the IEP.
At Philip Pocock we believe that every individual is unique and a true gift from God. Our mission is to strive to ensure that:
Every individual be treated with respect and dignity
Every day is a new day and therefore, every student should be given a fresh start
We as a community remember to smile, laugh and always be positive. A positive approach often changes the course of a day.
We educate our students to be a powerful advocate for themselves.
We maintain ongoing communication with our parents as they play an important part in our support team.
‘Let this be a school with Spirit’ Archbishop Philip Pocock
