Resource Centre

Blomfield

Special School

We are so much more than a Special School!

We are more than a school.  We are a learning resource for the Whangarei and Tai Tokerau community.

 

As part of this role we offer:

 

  • Outreach:  Our specialised teachers can support ORS funded students in mainstream schools by visiting regularly to upskill their teachers and support staff.  Our Outreach teachers will assess, help develop learning programmes and model teacher strategies.  We currently operate this service in Whangarei, the Mid and Far North.

  • Correspondence School/Te Kura:  We provide a Specialist teacher to support Special Needs Students working on Correspondence at home.

  • Professional Learning and Development: We offer our expertise to professionals and parents within the community through providing training in Non Violent Crisis Prevention and Intervention (NVCPI) and Hanen Communication.   We are a MOVE model site, and a SPEC School of Excellence and invite people with interests in these areas to contact us to arrange a visit.

  • Health:  We host a regular Wheelchair Clinic at the Base School to make it easier for students and parents to get wheelchair issues and repairs solved efficiently.  Every term we host a Paediatrician Clinic at school in collaboration with the Child Health Centre.
