Inspiring Engagement - Realising Potential

At CASS we believe that each of our students is a learner and our curriculum focuses on supporting each student to develop the skills, knowledge and competencies to reach their potential.

The New Zealand Curriculum sets the direction for student learning in New Zealand.  The CASS curriculum sits alongside the NZC and reflects How our students learn, What our students are learning and Who helps them learn.

Students have a Learning Plans which focus on core curriculum learning outcomes as well as exploratory curriculum, based on the New Zealand Curriculum.

Teachers and Therapists plan programmes to meet the goals of individual students.

Students in the school are provided with a range of learning experiences within the contexts of the seven learning areas of the New Zealand Curriculum.

Teaching and learning is accelerated and supported by the use of a range of digital technologies throughout the school.

We have been developing our Local CASS curriculum and recently held a parent meeting to share the work we have been doing with parents and to hear more about how we can strengthen our learning partnerships.

We draw from a range of programmes and tools to meet the learning of our students. Teachers and Therapists in consultation with families identify what students need to best support their learning programmes and training and ongoing professional development is provided.
