Special Education Unit
Our Special Education Unit (SEU) caters primarily for students with MoE funding (ORS), although this is not necessarily an entry requirement for the SEU. We have created a whānau environment, providing students with both academic and pastoral support. Students are encouraged to participate as much as possible and practically within mainstream classes and extracurricular activities as they are first and foremost members of the Kaipara College community.
The SEU provides them with an education around literacy, numeracy and key competency skills. We currently have three dedicated and highly skilled teachers in the SEU and an experienced team of teacher aides who facilitate the support and learning needs of these students. The SEU works closely with the Ministry of Education and other agencies to ensure wrap around support.
