Learning Support

The Kāpiti College Learning Support department provides assistance for a wide variety of students across the College from those taking correspondence subjects to students with behavioural and learning difficulties.

Our Special Needs unit largely caters for ORRS-funded children and generally has a roll of 8-15. Teacher Nicki Gibbs can be contacted at nicki.gibbs@kc.school.nz

Learning Support is managed by Tim Seymour (tim.seymour@kc.school.nz), supported by four teacher aides and Karenne Ekdahl - who supervises the Learning Support classroom.

We also have a full time SENCo (Special Education Needs Coordinator) position supporting students with learning and/or behaviour needs. You can contact Dianne Watson at dianne.watson@kc.school.nz.

Assistance for students with dyslexia and related learning needs is provided by Gemma Marriott, our SPELD tutor. Parents of prospective students who believe that their child has a reading disability are advised to contact SPELD to arrange an assessment. Gemma can also be contacted at Gemma.Marriott@kc.school.nz
