AIMS Program - Achieving Independence and Milestones


Deception Bay State High School is committed to inclusive schooling practices. Inclusive schooling practices is about maximising the outcomes of all students through identification and reduction of barriers to learning. AIMS works within the existing school environment to support students with suitable adjustments and curriculum provisions to ensure full engagement within the school community, and enabling students to work and achieve at their level. It is about setting high expectations, valuing and celebrating diversity; and employing high quality, evidence-based teaching practices focused on success for every student.

Each student’s educational support needs are determined on an individual basis and may change as they mature and progress. 

In Junior Secondary students identified as achieving substantially above or below year level achievement standard in one or more of their core curriculum may have an Individual Curriculum Program (ICP) for that subject.  An ICP is developed by AIMS teachers in consultation with parents and the student. A student with an ICP is taught, assessed and reported according to their identified ICP year level and learning expectations for that particular subject.

In the Senior Phase of Learning all students work towards achieving the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA).

Stymie allows bystanders to send anonymous notifications to Your School, about someone who they believe is being bullied or harmed.
The notification interface allows bystanders to upload evidence like screen shots of FB discussions, Snapchats, text messages or instant message conversations and an outline of the incident(s). Click here to view the notification page.
Your School receives the Stymie Notifications in the form of an email alert. You may choose which members of staff receive these emails.
The notifications are encrypted, anonymous and confidential. Stymie does not store any information; we are merely the road upon which it travels.
Stymie complements Your School’s existing student well-being/pastoral care framework.
Stymie was built in consideration of the Australian Safe Schools Framework and the recommendations from the Australian Covert Bullying Prevalence Study.
