Learning Support

Hutt Intermediate school supports all children in their learning and we appreciate that those with additional needs require extra attention. These students are supported by a dedicated team of Teacher Assistants, Class Teachers and a full-time Special Education Needs Coordinator (SENCO). We work collaboratively with any supporting agencies who may be involved.



At Hutt Intermediate we provide student-focused and inclusive in-class support. For students identified as requiring extra assistance, this may come in the form of adapted programmes, specialised equipment or materials and/or personnel. There are times where students may work in a small group or one to one setting. Where needed, Individual Education Programmes (IEPs) are designed in collaboration with class teachers, family, whanau and support staff. These are reviewed regularly to assess the success of the interventions and to identify the next steps.

 


During the process of transition to Hutt Intermediate, we identify children with additional learning needs in a range of ways, including:

  • parent and caregiver meetings

  • meetings with contributing schools

  • reports shared from previous schools

  • external reports supplied by parents/caregivers

  • Ministry of Education Learning Support Team


Parents and caregivers are encouraged to make an appointment with our SENCO to discuss concerns prior to their child’s enrolment at Hutt Intermediate.
