Kurrambee School is located in the Penrith Valley School Education Area, in the Western Sydney Region of NSW. Kurrambee School caters for the educational needs of approximately 110 students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, from Kindergarten to Year 12. Many of the students have additional disabilities such as physical, sensory, behaviour, vision and hearing. Each student has an Individualised Educational Plan (I.E.P.) or Transition Plan (I.T.P.) that is developed in consultation with the family or caregivers. The I.E.P/I.T.P. includes skills that the student may use now or in the future and therefore encompasses their whole of life. Our programs are directed towards maximising students' learning for living and improving their quality of life. Kurrambee School promotes Quality Teaching including assessment and digital reporting. In 2007 Kurrambee School won the Regional Director's award for Assessment and Reporting. Our digital reports have been shared across special education settings throughout NSW. Positive Behaviour for Learning has been introduced at Kurrambee School with the full support of the staff.
