Supporting the needs of students R-12 is a high priority of teachingand learning at Cleve Area School. This is underpinned through EarlyIntervention, Gross Motor Skills Co-ordination, Learning Assistance,Career Education, Middle School, Special Education, Gifted and Talentedidentification, Student Learning Project, Writing Based LiteracyAssessment programmes and Vocational Education Training (VET).
Despitethe relative isolation of Cleve from Adelaide and major centres theschool community is able to access support agencies, specialist centresand cultural programmes. Twenty one percent are school card holders,however, in reality this figure is significantly higher due to theimpact of rural poverty and reliance on fluctuating farming incomes.The Country Areas Programme provides funds to support the learning,cultural and social activities of students.
A large percentageof students are bus travellers from outlying rural communities atMangalo, Verran, Arno Bay, Rudall, Cowell, Darke Peak and Wharminda.However, staff are committed to providing after hours supportthroughout the year.
