Learning Support

Mountainview has a strong philosophy and history of providing inclusive educational opportunities for all students.

Whare Ako (formerly the Learning Support Centre) provides specialist educational support for individually-funded students. Through the collaboration for success model and a philosophy of mahi-tahi we work alongside students and their families to develop a meaningful individualised education programme that caters for their specific requirements within the New Zealand Curriculum.   

Learning Support also works alongside leadership, teaching and support staff to meet the needs of students identified with additional needs. We support individualised planning for students with complex or additional educational requirements outside of Whare Ako, that may also include collaboration with both the health or social sectors to engage specialist service. We are the key contact for students accessing or applying for specialist support from out of school providers such as Ministry of Education Learning Support or Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour. We provide opportunities for staff to engage with specialist professional development and resources to ensure the best outcomes for all  identified learners. Learning Support also manages the application for NCEA Special Assessment Conditions and allocation of conditions for verified students.
