This case study has been created with support from AERO and Clarke Road School, as an example of how to support complex learners through family engagement practices.


Clarke Road School is a K-12 school in Hornsby, New South Wales. As part of a cluster of 7 New South Wales schools, we have worked together to support complex learning needs of our students through effective family engagement. We found success through developing partnerships with families and community members designed to improve learning outcomes for all students. In this case study, we focus particularly on how families were engaged through implementation of our learning and assessment framework, the
‘Passport for Learning’.
