At Ruahine School, one of our priorities is to ensure we effectively support learners with different needs. Our teachers undertake ongoing professional learning to support learners with special needs. We have an experienced learning support team and a robust intervention strategy to ensure that any child experiencing learning challenges gains the support they need. 

If you are joining Ruahine School and have a child with additional learning or health needs, please contact our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) Lee Gibbs.
