We are proud to say ‘no-one is anonymous or alone’ at Coastal Taranaki School. We support our students through homeroom environments in the junior and middle school. Years 10 to 13 students meet twice a day with rohe (homeroom) teachers, and we have a number of deans who monitor the pastoral needs of students.
Our deputy principal leads a team committed to restorative practices for managing relationships. Two chaplains and a visiting health nurse successfully complement the work of the teaching and support staff.
By fully involving parents in student learning, an holistic understanding of the young person is enhanced. A long-term relationship between staff and students is uniquely possible as part of the seamless education we offer. Our teachers and staff strive together to guide students to become lifelong learners; fully equipped with skills and attitudes necessary for the 21st century.
Our ‘Resource Teacher for Learning and Behaviour’ is a school based service. The RTLB provides itinerant support to students and their teachers, in order to improve educational outcomes for years 0 to 10 students with learning or behaviour difficulties. Evidence based data is used to inform appropriate interventions.
