Learning Support Packs

Subtitle
Information about hard packs for children with additional learning needs

Two learning packs are available for students receiving Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) support and students working long term at level 1 of the NZ Curriculum. There is a Sensory/play based Pack and a Youth Pack.

Each pack is intended to support and complement student learning alongside existing school and website resources as students attend and transition back to their school or kura. The school or kura may work with whānau to identify if one of the packs will support the particular needs of their student or child, and if so which one.

The learning packs will be sent to the ordering school, allowing them an opportunity to further tailor the packs and distribute them in the best way given their close knowledge of the student and families. We note that some students will have had their needs met by other hard packs supplied in Tranche 1.

To order these new packs, please follow the guidance in assessing pack suitability for the student stated in the School Bulletin dated 19th May.

Enter requests in the Data Collection Portal (Salesforce) order process and use the guidance in the user guide for the Learning Support packs.

The portal will remain open to requests for these two packs up to 5pm Tuesday, 26 May 2020. Packs requested will be sent to the students’ school or kura.

For any queries please contact the Education Service desk on 0800 422 599 or service.desk@education.govt.nz.
