Our school’s vision is 'Deep learning in a safe and diverse environment where everyone belongs.' We are passionate about ensuring all of our students feel a genuine sense of belonging at our kura.

We have a permanent 0.8 Scale A teaching position, which includes ORS specialist teacher time and SENCO responsibilities, available for a person who can build strong connections with our ākonga, their whānau and the professionals who work with us. Commencement of this position is for the start of the 2022 school year, however there is flexibility to begin sooner. A fixed-term MU also comes with this position.

We would love our specialist teacher to creatively align our ORS students’ IEP goals to the learning within their classroom setting, alongside their teachers,  teacher aides and whānau members. Using our students’ strengths and interests is vital.  

The SENCO role involves coordinating access to support for students who have additional educational needs, including leading a team of teachers aides. The SENCO works alongside our learning support coordinator. Successful collaboration with our teachers, students and their whānau is essential. This allows for the co-construction of our students’ learning pathways.

We would also love to know about other skills and experience applicants can bring to this position.
