Catholic schools' funding for students with disability

Strong funding allocation

Several prominent Catholic schools have received strong funding allocations for students with a disability, accounting for eight of the top 10 private schools who receive more than $30,000 per student, reports The Australian.

Payments by the federal government to private schools for students with a disability vary widely, ranging from $3000 to $43,000 a student. Figures from the Education Department show three ­private schools, Sydney's Loreto Kirribilli and Monte Sant'Angelo in North Sydney, and Perth School, St Clare's College, were each allocated more than $40,000 for each disabled student enrolled last year.

Loreto Kirribilli, an independent Catholic school, was allocated more than $43,000 for every student with a disability enrolled last year. Nearby Monte Sant’ ­Angelo Mercy College at North Sydney, also an independent Catholic school, was granted more than $41,000 a student.

The third school to receive $40,000 a student, St Clare’s School at Lathlain in Perth, is classified as a special school and caters for girls at risk of not completing their schooling.
