We value all of our students and celebrate their individual strengths. The philosophy of the Learning Support Department at Kaiapoi High School is to ensure that we teach and learn in an inclusive environment; a place where everyone belongs, is accepted, and is supported by their peers and other members of the school community.

We focus on working collaboratively with students, whānau, parents/caregivers, school staff and other professionals involved with the students. 

Mainstreaming is the underlying philosophy of the school and drives our procedures.

Geraldine Enersen is our Special Education Needs Coordinator, and Susan Yardley is our Learning Support Coordinator.
