Special Learning Programmes
Within our school we are able to supply special help for children who are identified in our monitoring programme. These special help programmes include:
• Reading Recovery: One-to-one tuition in Reading at age 6.
• Resource Teacher of Literacy: One-to-one or very small group tuition to children struggling to achieve in reading in the Senior school.
• Special Needs Programmes: Small groups of children with similar needs are brought together for a specific purpose and time. These groups change to meet different needs.
• Support Teacher: Liaises with teachers and parents where a child needs special support. In these cases, a support group is usually formed to provide on-going special help and programming
• Extension Programme: Provides an accelerated programme for children with special needs.
During the summer months, regular swimming lessons are taken for all classes, at the Makino Aquatic Complex. This is paid for by the Board of Trustees. Swimming is part of the School Curriculum and all children must participate unless medically unfit. We require a note from you if your child is unable to take part in swimming.
Religious Education Programme
This is available for children in Year 3 and 4 classes on Wednesdays 9-9.30am. Religious Education takes place in the school hall. Written confirmation is essential for those students not wishing to attend. A place for this is also contained on the school Enrolment Form.
Lytton Street School offer a number of sporting opportunities for its students:
Creative Arts Programme
Lytton Street School is lucky to have a number of dedicated staff with talents in the Creative Arts. We offer a range of programmes.
Kick Start to School programme
Lytton Street School offers a "Kick-start-to-School" Programme for those children who are enrolled to attend this school and will be turning 5 years old this year, and a parent or caregiver who must attend with them. This is a once-a-week class and ideally children should have 6 - 8 sessions, prior to starting school. Please contact the school office for information and enrolment form.
Behaviour Management Programme - Building AROHA
We have developed a behaviour management strategy based on behaviour modification techniques and positive guidance strategies. We expect our children to act in a caring and responsible way at all times, in line with our AROHA values. If we have applied the different steps in this strategy and there is still inappropriate behaviour, we will invite you to become part of the child’s support team.
We currently run a Tuakana-Teina programme where some of our senior students tutor some junior students.
