Inclusive Education & Learning Support

Inclusive education means all children and young people are engaged and achieve through being present, participating, learning and belonging. At Hukanui this means all learners are welcomed and are supported to play, learn, contribute and participate in all aspects of life.


Children learn best when they:

  • feel accepted

  • enjoy positive relationships with their fellow learners and teachers

  • are able to be active, visible members of the learning community.


Te Tiriti o Waitangi principles, and inclusive learning communities do the right thing by learners and communities (tika), with integrity (pono) and with care and sincerity (aroha).


At Hukanui School there are three teachers who work in this area alongside teachers, families/whānau and specialist agencies. These teachers' details are listed below.
