At Ahutoetoe we believe that ākonga learn best when they:

·       feel accepted

·       enjoy positive relationships with their fellow learners and teachers, and

·       are able to be active, visible members in their learning community.

Inclusive education means all ākonga are engaged and achieve through being present, participating, learning and belonging. At the heart of Ahutoetoe’s vision (to connect (hono), nurture (poipoi) and inspire (hiringa)) is that education does more than simply instill knowledge in the minds of our ākonga but it nurtures their mental, physical, emotional, and social wellbeing, so that they can grow and reach their potential.

What does this look like at Ahutoetoe?

·       Wellbeing is at the forefront of our thinking, and we have partnered with the Mitey project to support and develop our ākonga’s mental health

·       We are committed to providing a safe and positive environment for all ākonga

·       Intentionally building positive relationships with ākonga, whānau (families) and wider community.

·       Recognising and valuing our diverse learners’ strengths and areas that require extra support through flexible small groups, differentiated and tailored support.

·       ESOL support in class & small groups

·       Supports are based on evidence-informed approaches. 

Ahutoetoe is a school that welcomes open communication and partnership. If you have any information or queries involving your child, please contact the class teacher in the first instance.
