Number of students with additional learning needs in Wellington learning support area

A Robinson made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

Ministry of Education did not have the information requested.

From: A Robinson

Dear Learning Support, Wellington, Ministry of Education,

The Ministry is responsible for planning for and delivery of support for students with additional learning needs.

In accordance with the Official Information Act:

1. How many students in the Wellington Learning Support area have additional learning needs?

2. Have all SENCOs, schools, and ECEs been recently surveyed on the number of students they have with possible or confirmed additional learning needs?

Note: a previous broader request was declined by the Ministry on the grounds that the information was too difficult to collate and would take staff from their core business. This request is specific to the Wellington Learning Support area, and the planning for and provision of learning support IS their core business.

Yours faithfully,

A Robinson

The Ministry is responsible for planning for and providing learning support to students who need it. How can they do this, and advise the government, if they have no idea how many students require it? Note: every school has a special needs register.

A complaint to the Ombudsman has been made, on the grounds the Ministry is perfectly capable of responding to the request, and it is their core business to both measure student additional learning needs, and to provide that information to the public.
