Special Needs

We are able to access the support of the Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour (RTLBs), the Resource Teacher of Literacy (RTLit), the Northland Health Camp, and Group Special Education (GSE) for students about whom we (or their parents) have concerns.  These services operate only on referral from the school (with the parents’ consent) and,because of their workloads, usually deal only with extremely urgent or serious referrals – often after placement on a long waiting list.  The school SENCO (Special Education Co-ordinator), Jenny Henderson, is usually involved with this.
