SENCO – SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS CO-ORDINATOR
Kia Ora Whanau, Parents and caregivers,
The Special Education Needs Co-ordinator at Three Kings School plays an important role in supporting our children with special learning needs and working alongside their whanau to ensure they have equal opportunities to access the curriculum in order to make progress and achieve individual goals.
The SENCO is also responsible for a range of duties that includes the following; Liaising with families, whanau, staff, students, specialists and outside agencies (e.g. RTLB, Learning Support Team), co-ordinating meetings, guiding and supporting teachers with practical strategies, providing resources, gathering student information, delivering initiatives, programmes and other administrative tasks to support the diverse needs in the school.
If you have any concerns about your child’s learning or behaviour, we ask that you speak to your classroom teacher followed by the team leader. If further support is needed your child can be referred to the SENCo.
