The Allan Labor Government is working to support students with a disability and additional needs through the Inclusive Schools Fund, delivering inclusive play areas, sensory gardens, and outdoor learning spaces.

On Wednesday, Member for Kalkallo Ros Spence announced that as part of this $9 million fund, Craigieburn Primary School will receive more than $229,000 for a new playground that will include accessible equipment, inclusive pathways, and sensory elements.

Since its establishment, around 420 creative projects have been funded through this transformational program, helping build inclusive learning spaces and specially designed accessible playgrounds – ensuring all students are able to fully participate, develop and succeed in Victorian government schools.

The Labor Government launched the Inclusive Schools Fund in 2015 to help schools cater for students whose additional needs require extra facilities. A total of $80 million has been invested to deliver these works throughout Victoria.
