Develop a learning support register

Develop a learning support register

Suggestions for developing and using a register.

  • Be clear about the register's purpose, how it will be used, how what it tells you will be confidentially shared, and how and by whom it will be managed.
  • Decide how you will identify students who need additional support and who can help with assessing student needs (internal and external individuals or agencies). Add information to your School Management System, if it supports this.
  • Use the register to help identify areas of need and coordinate support across the school.
  • Focus on learning needs to meet curriculum goals, to achieve NCEA, social support, and support students might need at home.
  • Use ongoing evaluations of data to inform professional learning and development focus areas, inclusive teaching approaches, and school-wide programmes.
  • Establish a process and timeframe for monitoring and evaluating the progress of each student on the register.
