Learning Support at Kelburn

At Kelburn Normal School we promote an inclusive culture where students are valued and respected. All students have the opportunity to achieve their potential, and to participate in school life with their peers. We acknowledge that our tamariki all learn in different ways. Many have special abilities and learning needs or are neurodiverse learners, so we aim to provide them with personalised, enhanced, and additional programmes which meet their abilities and needs, and address their wellbeing.


At Kelburn our learning support programme is coordinated by our Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO - see contact details below). The SENCO together with the home teacher and team leaders is responsible for all students' learning support needs, including talented students, and for organising and overseeing the delivery of any learning support.


The SENCO arranges and supports additional provision for children with difficulties in the following areas:

  • Communication & interaction

  • Cognition & learning

  • Behavioural, emotional & social

  • Sensory & physical
