The individual learning needs of each student is recognised and supported at Nazareth.  An important premise underpinning learning at Nazareth, is the understanding that each child learns at an individual rate with individual learning styles.

A number of programs exist to support students who require additional learning support.  Most notable of these is the Reading Recovery Program offered to Year One students.  Reading Recovery is an early intervention reading and writing program for Year 1 children.  It provides intensive, individual help for children having difficulty in reading and writing after their first year of schooling, and is designed to supplement quality classroom literacy instruction.

A Learning Needs Committee exists to identify any children who may require long term specialist assistance or intervention.

The school's Learning Centre is an integral part of the Nazareth Learning Community and provides specialized instruction to students with identified specific needs.
